Some humor making the rounds on the e-mail circuit
In Flight Humor
Pilot: “Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants …”
Pilot: “The weather at our destination is a cool 50 degrees with some broken clouds. We are hopeful that they’ll have them fixed before we arrive.”
Pilot’s welcome (after learning of his airline’s award, on another route): “… We are pleased to have some of the very best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight.”
When J.R. “Skip” Lam greets a group of passengers under the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation tent, he tells them about the helicopter they will be riding in, the safety harness, and the pilot.
Each of the pilots have made a career in aviation; they fly these warbird Hueys on the weekend, for the fun of it. They have thousands of flying hours, Lam says, “and some are in choppers.”
Then he grins, and the crowd laughs. Most of these pilots have been flying longer than their kids have been alive. For Lam, it was 22 years in the Air Force Special Operations that puts him behind the stick of these aircraft. For George Meeker, Master Crew Chief for the foundation, it’s been a little longer.
“I train the other crew chiefs,” said Meeker.
He’s been flying since he was drafted in 1967, and does it now so the memory of what went on in Vietnam won’t die.
