The passengers of an airplane were calmly sitting aboard their flight when the overhead speakers went off with an announcement from the captain. They were all shocked to hear what he had to say!


"This is Captain Johnson speaking. I want to welcome you aboard this flight from London to New York on behalf of the flight crew. At this moment, we are flying at a height of 35,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean..."

Speaking clearly, the Captain continued, "If you look out of the windows on the left of the aircraft, you will observe that the left engines are on fire. Then if you look out the windows on the right side, you will notice that the right-wing is terribly damaged..."

At this point, the passengers started to become alarmed looking out both sides of the plane. Then the captain said:

"If you look down towards the beautiful blue Atlantic Ocean, you might see a small yellow lifeboat that has three people in it, waving at you. Well, that's me, the captain, the co-pilot, and one of the air stewardesses. This is a recorded message. We hope you have a good flight!"


Can you imagine being inside that plane? The joke below is also about an airplane mishap!

One day, a military base was conducting routine training with its aircraft in an airfield. The military commission, which included many old colonels and sergeants, was watching the training.

During one of the aerial maneuvers, a bomb was accidentally dropped by one of the aircraft. Many of the personnel watching the training immediately ran for cover, except an old colonel.

The bomb landed on the ground, but it did not explode. It instead started to roll towards the colonel and the military commission. Everyone tried to run for cover, except the colonel who stood his ground.

As the bomb rolled, its speed decreased. It rolled towards the old colonel who eventually stopped it with his foot. Fortunately, the bomb did not go off, and the right personnel removed the dangerous object.

After all of the chaos settled down, a young soldier walked up to the old colonel and asked, "Excuse me, sir, but I have to ask, why did you not run away and hide like the rest of us?"

"Run and hide?" scoffed the old colonel. "That was a nuclear bomb!"
