Drunk pilot stood down

A PILOT, who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol when she got behind the controls of a Qantas plane at Sydney Airport last week, has been stood down from duty.

The female pilot was reportedly removed from a Brisbane-bound jet moments before take-off because crew members suspected she had been drinking.

On Monday, the airline confirmed in a statement that one of its pilots had been stood down due to "administrative reasons" and investigations were continuing.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has been notified.
