Coolest airplane pilot EVER!

Pizza makes everything better and it certainly helped on a grounded Frontier Airlines flight Monday night. 

The flight from Washington, DC to Denver had to be diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming due to dangerous weather. While stranded on the tarmac for hours, the pilot -- Gerhard Bradner, decided to take care of his hungry passengers and called Domino's to deliver 50 pizzas. Passengers were delighted when flight attendants walked through the aisle passing out slices to everyone. And the greatest part of this story is, the pilot paid for the pies himself. Once everyone ate and the weather cleared up, the flight took off again and finally reached Denver. (USA Today)
