Why would a pilot, who knows aircraft and airport security like the back of his hand be stupid enough to carry a loaded gun onto an aircraft? This is not a shot at NW (I like NW), I just find it incredibly odd that a pilot would need or want a loaded gun in the airplane. I believe that is what air marshalls are for.

This is insane, the question is not if the pilot would "need or want" a loaded handgun on the airplane, but why he tried to carry it on. I like NW too - except for what they have been doing to the DC-9s and DC-10s... this pilot may be unstable or incredibly arrogent....
