I read this today:
Essentially, on 2011 a "Bombardier Jet" flew from Morón (Buenos Aires) to BCN with 944.5 kg of cocaine at 83% purity on board. The plane stopped for refueling at Cabo Verde.
Here´s my question. The FO was found not guilty saying he knew nothing about the actual shipment. There was only one passenger on board. Assuming the newspiece is correct, can an FO of say a CL-600 or a Global Express actually be kept on the dark about a ton of extra weight on such a long routing? And if he notices, Can he actually accept and believe that "yeah, don´t worry about that extra ton, It´s just some fuel left over," or some such excuse?
