Wednesday marked National Aviation Day, so proclaimed by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1939. Ironically, it was a bad day for air travel, however it encouraged some Friday Funnies.
What’s the difference between a good flight and a great flight? A good flight you can walk away from. A great flight you can use the plane again.
A blonde won a free ticket to fly to a nearby country. She had never been on an airplane anywhere and was very excited and tense. As soon as she boarded the plane, a Boeing747, she started jumping in excitement, running seat to seat and starts shouting, “BOEING! BOEING!! BOEING!!! BO…..” She continued with this behavior and was getting so loud even the pilot in the cock-pit heard the noise. Annoyed by the goings on, the Pilot came out and shouted “Be silent!” There was pin-drop silence everywhere and everybody was looking at the blonde and the angry Pilot. She stared at the pilot in silence for a moment, concentrated really hard, and all of a sudden started shouting, “OEING! OEING! OEING! OE….”
An airliner was having engine trouble, and the pilot instructed the cabin crew to have the passengers take their seats and get prepared for an emergency landing. (Hoping for a good flight) A few minutes later, the pilot asked the flight attendants if everyone was buckled in and ready. “All set back here, Captain,” came the reply, “except the lawyers are still going around passing out business cards.”
But seriously folks, every time I fly and am forced to remove my shoes and it annoys me. I’m really grateful Richard Reid was the Shoe Bomber and not the Underwear Bomber!
