I have a friend that is a Russian fighter pilot, well actually as he likes to put it – russian ex military pilot. We began instructor training lessons together at one time, and one day crosswind theory was the subject of debate.

Baggage

August 6th, 2006

Being a new Commercial pilot I often struggled with baggage issues. I think we all did.
You’ve no doubt heard about the hunters that wanted to take two deer out of the bush when the pilot told them they could only take one. After begging the pilot, and using the formidable argument the “but the pilot last year let us takeoff”, they takeoff and crash approximately 300m from the end of the runway. The pilot turns to the passengers and says “I told you we couldn’t make it”, they reply “yes, but we made it 100m further than last year.”

Eh, But this turbulence is so rough… (short funnies)

August 6th, 2006

There is normally a practice in most airlines of alerting cabin crew of the impending landing (eg: cabin crew prepare for landing/cabin crew 10 minutes to landing etc)
Sometimes we had contract crews who flew alot of cargo, sometimes we just forgot…
once overheard on a reputable african airline:

Cabin Attendant 1: Eh, but this turbulence is so rough
Cabin attendant 2: Oh, Eh, there goes a tree…

I like to make up the rest…
Cabin attendant 1: Eh- we must be flying very low today….
