Pilots fall asleep after putting airbus on autopilot

LONDON (WFLX) - It was a snooze-fest -- at the wrong time!

Two pilots have come forward saying they fell asleep during a flight. The pilots were flying an airbus full of passengers and put the UK operated aircraft in autopilot.

The pilots say they fell asleep at the same time, and had only five hours of sleep the previous two nights.

The incident happened last month, but officials are not releasing what airline it happened on or where the flight was headed.
