Two Russian pilots who were about to fly a Boeing 767 were arrested at Manchester Airport early today on suspicion they were drunk.

The pair were picked up as they prepared to get in to a 200-tonne empty passenger plane to Moscow.

Security officers alerted police when they smelled alcohol and claim the pair were struggling to stand up as they waited for their jet.

Police went to a hangar where the empty Aeroflot passenger jet was just being towed out after being repaired.

The co-pilots were breathalysed at the scene and sources say they were well above the legal limit for flying.

The legal limit for flying is 20mg of alcohol compared with 35mg for driving.

The pair, 47 and 55, were arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol while acting as crew members.

The jet had no passengers on board at the time and it is understood it was being taken back to Moscow.

The men were taken to the airport police station and later transferred to Cheadle Hulme police station, where they remained in custody.

A security officer told the M.E.N: "They were coming through security when one of the officers smelled that their breath was rather sweeter than it should be. It was reported to the police.

"They went to board their aircraft which was being towed out of the hangar to go back to Russia. It had just had its undercarriage fixed. They were breathalysed.

"You could see they weren't right as they were waiting for the plane to be towed from the hangar. They could not actually stand up on their own. They were holding onto the side of the bus that had taken them to the hangar. They were swaying. That's why we got the police involved straight away."

The Aeroflot Boeing 767 remained at Manchester Airport this morning.

A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: "Police at Manchester Airport arrested two men under suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol while acting as crew members.

"The men, aged 47 and 55, both from Moscow, were arrested at approximately 3.10am today.

"Inquiries are ongoing."
