Austrian Airlines has agreed to provide us with a number of planes to carry a lot of tourists to Stockholm The only thing missing yet are the crews to fly the birds And that's where you come into play On the 27th of May we need as many pilots as we can get to carry all the folks hanging around our terminals safely to Sweden - possibly not in a 'United' kind of way
