Nearer My God To Thee

Wartime slang for a vicar was 'sky pilot'.
But following the emergency landing of an Air Canada flight at Shannon on Monday after the co-pilot began talking to God, it's clear that the two professions should always be kept separate.

Millions of people talk to God everyday. But if you talk to God aloud while flying a passenger jet you'll be handcuffed and dragged off to a psychiatric unit.
Which is probably how most air passengers would want it. Since 9/11, the precedents for people in cockpits talking to their God are not reassuring.
