It must have seemed like a good idea at the time: A British military pilot made a special delivery of a pizza to his girlfriend with a helicopter. The lieutenant was on a training exercise in eastern England when he made the unscheduled landing at his girlfriend's, who is a cadet. Romantic, maybe, but the military higher ups were not amused. The officer has been disciplined.
