I was at MAN today and heard a conversation between a family at the side of me that made me laugh to myself.
There was a Belavia Tu154 on short finals and in great 154 style was kicking out some smoke, at this point a woman said to her husband, "Look that aircraft is dumping fuel, that must be why all the photographers are here".
How I didnt crack up laughing is beyond me, If any A-netters live in the Stockport area, please dont light up and post-pone any barbeques you have planned.
The husband then went on to say, "Big plane the Tristar".
Has anyone got any other great comments that have been heard by people not in the know but think they are?

On a recent flight (DEN-SAN) I overheard a young lady saying to her mother when she saw the plane at the gate (a 757): "Oh no it's a small one!"
Found that quite funny, what would she have said if she would be flying a crj
Destruction leads to a very rough road but it also breeds creation

I actually make a habit of listening to some people to see what that come out with! I'm quite sad really, I'm sure you will agree! It never ceases to amaze how many people think an aircraft is taking off when in fact its landing!
