You Don't See That Everyday


Always listen to the safety instructions before takeoff, just in case your plane hits a flock of birds and crashes into a river ten minutes later.

155 passengers and crew, all survivors.

"Always listen to the safety instructions before takeoff, just in case your plane hits a flock of birds and crashes into a river ten minutes later."

those were exactly my thoughts (as i barely ever pay attention to safety instructions) as I was watching the news this morning!

Amazing! Cynical me, I wasn't sure planes would float.

Wait until you have kids, even if you've heard it 1,000 times, you listen up, try and get seating next to exits, make sure each seat has a life vest.

Ok, so I can now travel assured that even if the plane goes koko and decides to crash, there's the floating safety possibility :/

For a person who is about to travel on the 8th flight in 4 weeks in this bad weather,especially when having to fly the internal flights in the US,I am getting very worried and anxious...I should listen to the safety instructions!!!!The flight from Amman to JFK is not nearly as scary as the one from JFK to NC or any other internal destination...the planes r just horrific!

I hear you caroline, i still believe flying in america is still very very safe, i think there are 80,000 flights everyday. The FAA has some strict rules with airlines that it even grounded ALL American Airlines planes because they were not totally compliant with maintenance procedures, Southwest Airlines had that problem 2 years ago as well, and this plane that ditched in the Hudson apparently had serious engine problems 2 days prior to the accident. I would still fly despite all of that.
