On a recent walk through the local video store I saw the movie "Airplane" sitting on the shelf. It's been a while since I last watched that one, so I'll have to pick it up one of these days soon. As my mind immediately flashed on some the hilarious scenes I'd recalled seeing in it, a blog idea popped into the frontal lobe.
I thought about a few things that you wouldn't want to hear coming from the cockpit of a commercial airline while you are on board:
1* Any of you guys know what this blinking light means?
2* I sure hope that crack holds till we land!
3* Did I tell you my doctor finally took me off Prozac about a week ago?
4* Tell me you're kidding about the fuel gauge saying "Empty".
5* That's a great avionics school . . . Me? Oh, I learned landings on an X-Box 360
6* I can't believe it either. My first time behind the controls . . . How cool it that?
7* Is it just me or does anybody else smell smoke?
8* Oh, thaaaat's what the tower was trying to warn us about!
9* Damn, we're gonna wish we had those when it comes time to land!
10* Why thanks for asking flight attendant Franny, I'll have a Corona and the captain will have another Scotch N' Water.
Feel free to add to the list.
