I Conquered The 2013 -2015 Polar Bear Plunge!!


« on: July 18, 2013, 11:56:00 am »

During a long flight the pilot came on the intercom and said "We have to shut down engine number one due to some problems". "Sorry, but that will slow us down and delay our arrival by about 45 minutes"  A few minutes latter the pilot came back on the intercom and said "We have to shut down engine number two due to an oil leak, but don't worry folks, these Jumbos fly just fine on two engines but this will slow us down even more and add to our delay time". A few minutes after that the pilot came back on the intercom and said "Ladies and gentlemen looks like we'll have have to shut down engine number three it's been acting up, sorry, but it'll extend our delay even more" A passenger grumbled "If that pilot shuts down one more engine, we'll be up here all night" Shocked

I had a digital flight control panel in the shop some years ago that was removed in OKC. It sits in the eyebrow panel just above the flight instruments.  The tag said it was "removed for erotic operation."  Now, there's a guy who truly loves his work.
