Fired over selfie: Austral Lineas Pilots Fired, Two Argentinian pilots have been fired after they let a Playboy-esque model fly their plane with 36 passengers on board.

The airline — Austral Líneas Aéreas — announced that Patricio Zocchi Molina and Federico Matias Soaje were fired after they “put the flight’s safety at risk” when they let Victoria Xipolitakis fly their domestic flight.

Both pilots have been banned from flying with the airline for the at least five years.

“The company confirms its continuing commitment to safety and the respect for operational and safety policies and protocols,” the airline said. “The behavior of the pilots, also rejected by their professional association, is totally opposed to the operational safety culture of Austral Líneas Aéreas.”

Xipolitakis is a model who has reportedly posed for Greece’s version of “Playboy.”

The pilots let her be in control of the plane for part of the takeoff.
