“Glad We Missed these Two Pilots from our Last Trip”

 

 

Aer Lingus Flight 101 was flying from Heathrow to Dublin one night, with Paddy the pilot, and Shamus the co-pilot. As they approached Dublin airport, they looked out the front window.

"B'jeesus," said Paddy "Will ye look at how fookin short dat runway is."

"You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy" replied Shamus.

"Dis is gonna be one a' de trickiest landings you're ever gonna see," said Paddy.

"You're not fookin kiddin, Paddy." replied Shamus.

"Right Shamus. When I give de signal, you put de engines in reverse" said Paddy.

"Right, I'll be doing dat," replied Shamus.

"And den ye put de flaps down straight away," said Paddy.

"Right, I'll be doing dat," replied Shamus.

"And den ye stamp on dem brakes as hard as ye can," said Paddy.

"Right, I'll be doing dat," replied Shamus.

"And den ye pray to de Mother Mary with all a' your soul," said Paddy.

"I be doing dat already," replied Shamus.

So they approached the runway with Paddy and Shamus full of nerves and sweaty palms. As soon as the wheels hit the ground, Shamus put the engines in reverse, put the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and prayed to Mother Mary with all of his soul. Amidst roaring engines, squealing of tires and lots of smoke, the plane screeched to a halt centimeters from the end of the runway, much to the relief of Paddy and Shamus and everyone on board.

As they sat in the cockpit regaining their composure, Paddy looked out the front window and said to Shamus "Dat has gotta be de shortest fookin runway I have EVER seen in me whole life".

Shamus looked out the side window and replied, "Yeah Paddy, but look how fookin wide it is".

I guess that is an example of how you should always look on the bright side of life. Also try to land your plane the correct way on the runway.

I was always taught that the pilot applies flaps before landing. That had to be one HELL of a stop!
