British Airways pilot grounded after leaked photos show his lewd acts in cockpit

A British Airways pilot named Colin Grover, 51, has been suspended after photos showing him masturbating while the plane was 38 000 feet in the air were leaked.

The photos were leaked by The Sun and they show the pilot in the cockpit, wearing stockings and pleasuring himself. Other photos show pornographic magazines spread out on the controls.

The photos were taken when the plane was on autopilot and the co-pilot seat was empty. According to the serial numbers on the dashboard, the photos were taken on at least two different planes.

His LinkedIn profile says he amassed over 26 years of long-haul and short-haul flying experience.

Grover has denied the photos are of him even though his face is visible in one of the photos.

A British Airways spokesperson said: “We are taking these allegations extremely seriously.”
