Re: That farmer...

In order to get a new emergency system disk to Cape Town from Jo'burg - about 1200 miles - it was decided to send it on an SAA flight due to leave shortly. The disk pack was an 8MB replaceable - which was fairly bulky. Rather than risk the disk pack in the cargo hold - it was arranged for it to be put in the direct care of the pilot.

Several hours later Cape Town complained the disk still had not arrived. It was found to be still on the plane - now sitting back at Jo'burg airport. The pilot had completely forgotten about handing it over.
