    Drunken smoker tries to open airliner door in flight

    A French woman who is terrified of flying admitted in an Australian court Monday that she drunkenly tried to open an airplane door mid-flight to smoke a cigarette. Sadrine Sellies, 34, was placed on a good behaviour bond after pleading guilty in Brisbane Magistrates Court to endangering the safety of an aircraft.

    Ms. Sellies was travelling on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to the east coast city of Brisbane on Saturday when the incident occurred at the start of a three-week Australian vacation with her husband, the court heard.

    She walked toward one of the aircraft's emergency exits with an unlit cigarette and a lighter in her hand and began tampering with the door, prosecutors said. But a flight attendant intervened and took Ms. Sellies back to her seat.

    Nice to see a polite smoker for once, willing to step outside to smoke...
