Blind Pilots
« on: September 23, 2013, 06:21:06 PM »
The passengers on a jet watched in horror as the pilot and co-pilot walk up the boarding stairs – both are wearing dark glasses and are carrying white sticks. There’s a buzz of conversation as the two men enter the cockpit. Surely they can’t be blind – it must be a joke. The engines fire up and the aircraft starts taxiing down the runway. The passengers are extremely nervous. The plane accelerates and the passengers watch in horror as the aircraft heads straight for the fence at the end of the runway. Surely the pilots must see how close they are. Why don’t they take off? The plane gets faster and faster as they near the end of the runway. The passengers realise they
are not going to make it and start screaming. The plane’s nose lifts up and the plane
takes off, missing the fence by inches. The passengers breathe a huge sigh of relief. In
the cockpit the blind pilot turns to the blind co-pilot and says, “Y’know, one of these days they are going to start screaming too late and we’re all going to die.”
