The arrest of two pilots on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol features heavily in Scotland's Sunday papers.

The Sunday Mail says police were called to Glasgow Airport after concerns were raised as the men tried to pass through a staff check-in.

The same story dominates the front page of The Scottish Sun on Sunday which highlights the fact that this is the second time in six weeks that pilots have been arrested on similar charges at the same airport.

Scotland on Sunday asks why US presidential candidate Donald Trump has shown "so little interest in his Scottish mother's native island".

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is planning to start a new referendum drive on Friday, according to the Sunday Herald. The paper says wooing 'No' voters will be a "key part" of her strategy.

The Sunday Post leads with a report on "Scotland's bus betrayal" in which it accuses bus operators of increasing ticket prices while "raking in millions".

The Scottish Mail on Sunday is claiming victory in its campaign to tackle what it describes as the UK's "bloated foreign aid budget". It says the government has decided that tens of millions of pounds can be diverted to fund the war on terror.
