A fake pilot was arrested in Amsterdam just minutes before take off today shortly after the real pilot was found unconscious in the gents toilet without his uniform.
A police spokesman Dick Van Dyke said the man detained was clearly in a confused state and taken to hospital for assessment. It later transpired that the fake pilot was Vincent Van Magoo a relative of the world famous short sighted Gink Mr Magoo.
Magoo had apparently been confused when he was looking for a fancy dress shop and went to the toilet by mistake opening the door with such force that he knocked out the pilot and then for some reason stole his uniform.
In leaving the toilet he was directed to the flight that was due to go from Amsterdam to Turkey.
Van Magoo was later released and taken away in a white van.
