TWO phony pilots have been arrested trying to smuggle cocaine into Spain.

Jokshan Manuel, 35, and Henri Joseph, 37, raised suspicions while queuing with passengers at passport control in Madrid’s Barajas Airport.

Despite sporting replica uniform, the duo – arriving from Santa Cruz, in Bolivia – was unaware pilots and crew passed through later.

Narcotics police discovered fake flight credentials and a sizeable 55 kilos of cocaine stowed away in their luggage.
