    Army pilot rap over pizza flight

    A lieutenant has been disciplined after using an Army helicopter to deliver a pizza to his girlfriend.

    The incident on 25 January saw the unnamed officer divert from a routine training flight over Stanford, Norfolk, to take the fast food.

    The Ministry of Defence refused to name the officer, from 659 Squadron, or divulge how he was punished.

    A spokesman said: "The chain of command doesn't condone these sorts of actions. The individuals have been disciplined."

    He added: "During a routine low-level training sortie, somebody decided it would be an opportunity to use it for a delivery."

    The extra cost caused by the diversion is not known.

    The pizza was understood to have been delivered to a female officer cadet at an Army range at Thetford, Norfolk.

    The Ministry of Defence spokesman did not confirm what toppings were on the pizza.

    what i wonder is did the helicopter's down draft cool the pizza and thus render a speedy delivery just the same as any other necessitating the use of a microwave to heat it back up from luke warm?...

    Most expensive pizza ever?
    Someone left a note on a piece of cake in the fridge that said, "Do not eat!". I ate the cake and left a note saying, "Yuck, who the hell eats paper ?
