A Southwest Airlines pilot allegedly exposed his genitals while he was flying a plane from Philadelphia to Orlando last summer, federal authorities charged in recent court documents.
The pilot, Michael Haak, “intentionally committed an act of lewd, indecent and obscene exposure of his genitals in a public place” on the Aug. 10 flight, on which “he was the pilot in command,” a one-page federal complaint filed in Maryland alleges.
“The acts began, continued and were completed while the aircraft was in flight from Philadelphia International Airport to Orlando International Airport, during which it overflew parts of the District of Maryland and other federal districts,” states the complaint, which was filed on April 2.
It’s unclear what lewd acts he specifically participated in during the flight beyond exposing himself.
In a statement, a Southwest spokesperson said the pilot had left the airline before charges against him were filed.
