    We've heard of hostile airspace, but it appears it can also be way, way too friendly.

    Police expect to charge a US Airways pilot for allegedly taking an upskirt photo of an unaware 15-year-old girl in a terminal at Philadelphia International Airport on Thursday night.

    If you're unfamiliar with the term "upskirt," for heaven's sake, don't Google it. Ask your mother like old times, or just keep reading.

    The 55-year-old Pennsylvania-based pilot, whose name will not be released until he is charged, has already been suspended by the airline. A witness claimed she saw the man surreptitiously aim his cell phone camera up the girl's skirt to take a picture while the girl was sitting with her mother, and immediately reported the incident to police.

    A warrant was requested to view evidence on the man's phone. Police said they expect to get an arrest warrant signed by a judge and have the pilot turn himself in next week on misdemeanor charges including stalking and corrupting the morals of a minor.
