In the world of aviation, on-the-job selfies are the quickest way to find yourself in the unemployment line.

Two pilots were fired after taking photos with an actress in the cockpit during a flight on Tuesday from Buenos Aires to Rosario. The woman, Vicky Xipolitakis, shared the photos with her 405,000 followers on Twitter. 

In the photos, the trio looks like they’re having a great time — smiling widely as they pose in the cockpit. The problem is that one of the photos was clearly taken while the plane was in-flight, a fact that didn’t impress airline management.

Mariano Recalde is the president of Aerolineas Argentinas and told the local news that the pilots in-air selfies put other lives at risk. “As soon as we became aware of the situation, we dismissed the pilots,” said Recalde. “They are two irresponsible people.”

It’s all fun and games until someone gets fired. (Photo: Vicky Xipolitakis)
 

Xipolitakis is an actress and model who is famous for regularly posting seductive photos on her social media. She has been barred from flying with the airline for five years for her part in the incident.

This isn’t the first time a pilot landed in hot water after snapping photos in the cockpit. Earlier this month, a Japan Airlines pilot was suspended from his position after he took a selfie in the cockpit with a flight attendant.

And back in March, the internet went into a tizzy after a woman posted photos sitting in the cockpit during her flight from Taipei to Hong Kong. The Civil Aviation Department requested that the airline provide an explanation for the incident.
