Explicit Helicopter Chat Broadcast to Winnipeg Public

By James O Malley on at

Two Winnipeg helicopter pilots have been left red-faced after it has emerged that a sexually explicit conversation they thought was private was broadcast on the chopper's loud speaker to the people living below.

Apparently the conversation included swearing and discussion of oral sex. Which must be a bizarre thing to hear coming from a helicopter. It seems that the crew had accidentally switched on the loud speaker.


Winnipeg police have since issued a statement saying that "The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off."


Unsurprisingly, the incident is now the subject of a review - though we don't know yet whether the results will be kept private, or whether they too will be loudly broadcast from a helicopter flying overhead. [CBC via BBC]
