A MARRIED British Airways pilot’s text messages reveal sordid details of a night of drinking, including a suggestive sex boast and how he ended up “snorting coke off a woman’s tits”.
BA First pilot Mike Beaton has now been sacked after boasting about his drug and drink-fuelled orgy to a horrified colleague.
After he told a stewardess friend, she reported him to airline bosses, who canceled the 12-hour flight he was supposed to fly from Johannesburg, South Africa, to London.
The cancellation is believed to have cost BA an estimated £100,000.
Father-of-one Beaton was suspended and flown home as a passenger the next day before being drug tested at Heathrow.
After the results came back positive, he was fired, The Sun revealed.
A source said the pilot was “extraordinarily stupid” to reveal the graphic details of his stopover in Johannesburg in texts.
He told his colleague: “I was a very naughty boy,” the messages say.
Beaton, from Devon, had a short break in the South African city before he was due to co-pilot a return flight to London.
He described the night of debauchery that followed, telling how he met local men in a nightclub, as well as a Welsh holidaymaker and a “young Spanish bird”.
He wrote: “We all walk (staggering) back to the hotel bar for one last drink before bed.”
“Welsh and one of these guys get on really well, but she told him I was her boyfriend.
“A few drinks at the bar, a little snogging and then somehow we’re all on our way to this guy’s apartment.”
“Welsh decided I should actually be her boyfriend – Spanish met up with one of the two local guys and got her tits sucked on her sofa.”
He talked about how the “girls were dancing topless” and decided to get naked too before some Class A drugs arrived.
Beaton added: “I’ve lost my shirt somewhere and one of the local boys pulls out a plate with a few lines of coke on it.”
“Then there’s a debate about whose breast is best for repulsion.”
“This is the story of how I snorted cocaine off a girl’s t**s in Johannesburg.”
He continued how he “spent the night at Welsh’s, gave her shit for ages (I suspect the coke played a role) and then was so shitty that I couldn’t even lift my head until I was 2.” .”
BRITISH AIRWAYS “UNDER SHOCK”
An airline source told The Sun: “With all the bad behavior going on on the route between flights, this incident is hard to believe.”
“A first officer has rigorous training and knows the law inside and out. His job is to protect the safety of passengers.”
“This behavior was the opposite of what is expected of British Airways pilots.
“The airline is in shock. This pilot hoisted himself up by his own petard.
“The idea of sending details of his drinking and drug session to a stewardess between flights is extraordinarily stupid.
“Angry managers followed protocol and the pilot was drug tested on his return to the UK.
“The alcohol would no longer have been found in his system, but the Class A drug would have been found. He will never fly again.”
The Sun revealed earlier this month how a BA stewardess was arrested outside a Miami strip club after having drinks with the crew of rival Virgin Atlantic.
In April we told how a BA pilot was reported to police in Singapore after he allegedly sexually assaulted a stewardess during a night of drinking.
And last March it emerged that staff in the Maldives had been banned from all-inclusive deals after a drunk stewardess passed out on the beach.
A BA spokesman said of Beaton’s dismissal: “Safety is always our top priority.”
“The matter has been referred to the CAA and this individual no longer works for us.”
The Civil Aviation Authority has revoked the former pilot’s medical certificate, meaning he is now banned from the flight deck.
A CAA spokesman said: “An airline must inform us immediately if a British pilot has abused alcohol or drugs while boarding or on board an aircraft.”
“In these cases, we would immediately suspend the pilot’s medical examination, meaning he cannot fly.”
“In most cases, the pilot is examined by a team of medical experts and, if he wishes to fly again, a comprehensive rehabilitation program is carried out.
“Only when we were completely satisfied would medical care be resumed.”
The Sun contacted Beaton for comment.
His wife Jagoda declined to comment on their £750,000 home, saying: “You need to talk to my husband about it.”
