Air traffic controller nodded off

Air traffic controller nodded off

An aeroplane was forced to circle for more than half an hour after an air traffic controller dozed off.

The pilot of the cargo plane said he attempted a number of times to contact the controller for permission to land - but got no answer.

He was forced to circle around Nice Airport in France until the sleepy controller was woken up by security officials more than 30 minutes later.

French air traffic control service DGAC described the case as "extremely rare" and said the cargo plane "had never been in difficulty".

An internal investigation has now been set up to find out why the controller fell asleep on the job.
