    (CNN) -- The pilot of a Boeing 737 was in the cockpit, preparing to take off with 101 passengers, when police arrested him for flying with a fake pilot's license, investigators said.

    The 41-year-old Swedish man was poised to fly on Tuesday night from Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, to Ankara, Turkey, when investigators "caught the pilot red-handed during his flight preparation," according to a statement from the Dutch National Police Services Agency.

    Authorities charged him with forgery and flying without a valid license, the statement said.

    It's apparently not the first time the man, whose identity was not divulged, has tried to fly without a license.

    Investigators in Sweden charged the man several years ago with flying with a fake license, but they did not pursue the case because they couldn't find him, said Anders Lundblad, a spokesman for the Swedish Transport Agency.

    The Swedes got a tip recently that the man was flying for a Turkish company and that he would soon be in the Netherlands, Lundblad said. They passed that information to Dutch police, which led to the pilot's arrest at the Schiphol airport in Amsterdam.

    The man said he had flown for 13 years for companies in Belgium, Great Britain and Italy, the Dutch police said, though it was unclear whether he had a license for all or part of that time.

    He recently had a valid license to fly small commercial airplanes, but that license had expired and would not have allowed him to fly passenger aircraft, the Dutch statement said.

    Lundblad also said the man once had a valid pilot's license.
    "Why he never renewed it I guess only he knows," he said.

    My take:

    Kumbe hata wenzetu wanajua vya kunyonga?

    Mbona ndo mabingwa Magezi? The other day we had an exam, as we all gathered outside the venue, one of my classmates, a Greek, said , "I suggest we do this exam the Greek way." So everybody wanted to know exactly what the guy meant, so he said, "You know, cooperation!"

    Hakuna aliyemsikiliza, kila mtu alikufa kivyake. Baada ya mtihani jamaa akatoa ki post-it note alikokua ameandika desa zake zote anatuonesha kama vile ni kitu cha maana sana kafanya.

    Kwa hiyo ndiyo, usiwaone "wenzetu" ukafikiri mambo yao poa sana
