"You think a princess and a guy like me...?"

From the "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" file:
A Turkish man (see left), who had deserted from the Turkish army after complaining that he was being persecuted for converting to Christianity, hijacked a plane, possibly as a gesture to get the attention of Pope Benedict (reports on his motivation vary). Coincidently, on the plane were Miss India, Miss Singapore, Miss Malaysia and Miss Philippines, on their way to the Globe International 2006 Beauty Pageant. That's Miss India pictured at right

Perhaps they were together at 30,000 feet, but it's clearly not a match made in heaven. But if the erstwhile hijacker learned nothing else, at least he discovered that brown is beautiful.

You can't make this stuff up.

H/T to Scott Carson, who is not amused.

So what happened next?!?!?!?

Did they ever get the plane back?

Did he and Miss India ever reconcile?

Will the Pope finally (at long last) start to pay him notice?

And who is this Scott Carson anyways?.... And why doesn't he work for the City of Glendora?

Don't leave us hanging (It gets hard on the arms after awhile).

I have to know!!!!!
