Two pilots working for Algeria’s national airline have been suspended because they allowed a 10-year-old orphan to fly a domestic passenger aircraft.

The report says the boy’s adventure was funded by a charity and filmed by El Bilad TV, who show him dressed for the occasion in a pilot’s uniform and pushing buttons in the cockpit under supervision.
It’s however not clear how many passengers were on board the Air Algerie flight from the capital Algiers to the easter city of Setif but Algerian media outlets confirms that the pilots were suspended on July 29, 201 pending further investigation “because the act was a breach of civil aviation regulations”.
