Raging James Bond crew accused of endangering flight

April 1, 2015 Aviation, Headline News No Comments Email Email


Drunken film crew members involved in the latest James Bond movie triggered an international air alert by vomiting, urinating in the aisles and going on a drunken rampage during a flight to Mexico, a British newspaper has reported.

The claims were carried by the Mail on Sunday.

The flight was a private A330 charter from London Stansted, taking about 150 stunt men, camera crew and technical team members working on the film Spectre to Mexico City. They were shooting of opening scene of Spectre, based on the Day of the Dead festival, in the Mexican capital, the paper reported.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reported to be probing the claims.

The behaviour is said to have included smoking cigarettes in flight and removing a pin securing one of the cabin doors while close to American airspace.

The FAA is particularly concerned about the pin incident, which could have endangered the safety of the aircraft and those aboard it – even other aircraft in the vicinity.

A source told the Mail on Sunday: “The behaviour of a handful of crew members got out of hand and made things very unpleasant for their fellow passengers. Eon [the Bond production company] has apologised to all the crew members who had to endure this intolerable behaviour.”

An Eon spokesperson said: “We are investigating the matter so cannot comment further at this time.”
