Terror as pilot tells passengers: this plane's a deathtrap. Thank you Daily Mail.

And it only gets worse:

A jet carrying 180 British tourists was grounded when its pilot announced: "Do not fly with this plane, it is not safe."

The holidaymakers were about to take off back to Bristol Airport from Antalya, Turkey, when a strange sound came from the Airbus A321's engines.

Then the captain announced: "I am resigning from my job. Do not fly with this plane. It is not safe. Do not fly with Onur Air."

The unnamed pilot walked off the aircraft, leaving the passengers in 38C heat without air conditioning.

Reminds me of stories from the then-Soviet Union. And it puts the whole waiting-on-the-tarmac thing in perspective.
