Passengers on a small commuter plane are waiting for the flight to leave.
They're getting a little impatient,
but the airport staff has assured them that the pilots will be there soon,
and the flight can take off immediately
The entrance opens, and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilots'
uniforms - both are wearing dark glasses,
one is using a seeing-eye dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle
with a cane. Nervous laughter spreads
through the cabin; but the men enter the cockpit and the plane starts up.
The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that
this is just a little practical joke.
None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway and people at the windows
realise that they're headed
straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory. As it begins to
look as though the plane will never take off, that it will plough into the
water, panicked screams fill the cabin - but at that moment, the plane lifts
smoothly into the air.
The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon they have all
retreated into their magazines
secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, 'You know, Bob,
one of these days they're going to
scream too late, and we're all gonna die.'
