Probably a case of 'nothing to see here ..' but a Delta jet was landed OK with the pilot locked out by a jammed door. An emergency was declared.

Wonder if everyone wondered about the co-pilot's recent history ;)

There was a story doing the rounds about 20 years ago, unsure if it is true about an African airline that had bought a ex BA aircraft.

Both pilots thought new aircraft lets go and do some PR work with our passengers.

They left the cockpit and wedged the door open, but apparently hit a bit of turbulence and the door slammed shut.

You can image the passengers faces when they saw both pilots trying to break the door down with a axe.
