The pilot of a passenger jet, thought to be an Air New Zealand flight, was on his descent to Christchurch International Airport on Boxing Day when he radioed ground control with an unlikely sighting – a shark flying at several thousand feet.


This story gave me a giggle... I have heard of it raining fish before.. i have also heard of bird strike on jet engines... but this.... nope.. never before lol

Let me know what you think about this rather amusing story!


Peace

I ran over a shark on a motorcycle once.
It was a rubber inflatable shark that people usually pull behind a boat that had come out of someone's truck, but, a shark , or at least shark-like-object nonetheless.

Perhaps the same people that are throwing rubber sharks on freeways are now filling them with helium?

Guess they didn't read the manual.

...should not be operated outside, near water or by children aged under three.

lol.. now that could have potentialy been a dangerous incident on your motorbike hehe


I live in north queensland australia and during last years heavy rain and cyclone we had a report on the tv of a car hitting a large crocodile on the road..... unfortunately it was the real kind sans helium!

the intent was to be cryptic so that on reading the article it would become apparent as to what happened.

That was kinda half the fun of this post. Who on earth would expect there to be a real life shark flying at that altitude?!?!


Cheers for stopping by!

Peace

It's in the Chit Chat Forum and was most obviously meant for some well-humored laughs...

Are you really wound that tight?

Thinking about it, it sounds like a fairly depressing toy. A flying shark but it's not designed to be flown outside? Pffff! For a 100 dollars that's not much fun.

Cheers bro... yeah the headline "helium filled plastic shark spotted by pilot" would not have had the same effect i don't think!


Glad you liked it!

Ah man, what a deceiving headline. How do you leave that out? I'm think tornado or something. OUT...

lol.. you make a good point... it did not mention anything about that in the article hehe
