Pilot Buys Pizza for the Whole Plane

Getting your plane delayed because of weather is not unusual, but this is: Frontier flight 719 from Washington, D.C. to Denver was diverted to southern Wyoming for a few hours because of bad weather. When his plane touched down in Cheyenne, pilot Gerhard Bradner was hungry and wanted to order some pizza. But instead of ordering just for himself, the pilot decided to order 50 pies from Dominos - enough to feed the whole plane - and paid for it out of his own pocket.

Asked why he did it, Captain Bradner said to KUSA-TV that it was his duty. "If the need arises you need to take care of your family; you need to take care of your passengers. They are my responsibility the moment they step on the aircraft until they get off the aircraft," said the pilot.

Bradner said that his coworkers had since nicknamed him "Pizza Guy." Read the full story over at KUSA-TV.
