It wasn't the pilot, but the navigator says the article.
Small difference, but he certainly wasn't at the controls at the time of the accident.

If they were sober, they wouldn't be flying with drunk navigator! Or maybe they are just plain stupid like you are!

Someone can be slightly over the limit and be undetected by people around him. It won't be the first, nor the last time that happens.

In Russian terms, being a little drunk is when one only drinks two liter's of vodka.

But dumb shyt ronan does not realize that it is the system that is also to blame. When an aircraft crew are together, the drunk would be known to them. Slurred words, etc. would let them know if someone is under the influence. It seems it is acceptable, as long as he can walk and talk O. K. The dude probably had only a few hours of sleep, too.

It seems ronan does not know the importance of a navigator.
