An airline captain was flirting with his young woman co-pilot moments before sending his packed commuter plane into a deadly tailspin that killed 50.

The 'fatal distraction' was revealed before the opening of a public hearing into the crash in the U.S.

Captain Marvin Renslow, 47, and Rebecca Shaw, his 24-year-old co-pilot, died in the crash as the Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft approached Buffalo airport in New York State.

Their banter about relationships was captured on the flight recorder, according to the New York Post, despite Federal Aviation Authority rules that forbid non-flight-related talk below 10,000 feet.



All 49 people aboard and one man on the ground were killed in the crash.

Oh men. Because of it's epic failure...I LOLed.

Oh yeah, the source:
