Secret Life of a Pilot

A Dutch King!

Yes, a Dutch King has been leading a secret double life as an airline pilot for 21 years. While this may be old news, it's pretty darn cool! Do you know who you're flying with?



Reuters:


"Bruce Willis has nothing on Dutch King, who just revealed he's been moonlighting as a professional pilot for the past 21 years. The king's dubbelleven, or “double life,” as De Telegraaf called it, involves being a co-pilot on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

For more than two decades, the king has flown Fokker 70 planes twice a month, taking unsuspecting passengers on short-haul flights. He calls it a relaxing hobby. If you think you'd recognize if your pilot was someone famous, or even your country's leader, think again.

“The advantage is that I can always say I am speaking on behalf of the captain and crew to welcome them on board, so I don't have to say my name,” Willem-Alexander told De Telegraaf, according to Sky News. “But then, most people don't listen anyway.”  KLM, for its part, tweeted a photo of the king in the cockpit"
