Despite the myth that modern jets can “fly themselves,” piloting a plane actually requires the full attention of both pilot and copilot. Which makes the actions of captain Ranbir Arora and copilot Aditya Chopra that much more mind-boggling. During Air India flight IC884 from the United Arab Emirates to Delhi in October 2009, the two men came to blows with two colleagues at 30,000 feet. The brawl spilled into the cabin, where a female crew member “hit the cockpit door with such force that she started bleeding,” according to the Times of India.
