I Just Heard A Hilarious Aviation Story

Thu Sep 22, 2005 6:11 am

A guest just checked into my hotel, and he and I were trading stories about in-flight experiences.. He told me this one...

This takes place about 6 months after Captain Al Haynes miracuously landed that DC-10 (United 232). This guest was flying United from Chicago - LAX in a DC-10.. Capt Haynes was the captain on the plane.. This was back when there was still smoking sections on the plane. This guy was in FC, NON smoking section, and was sitting next to a friend who HATED smoking.. Well, as luck would have it, James Brown and a girl he was with were sitting behind them. In NON-smoking.. James brown had just gotten out of the slammer. Well, In-flight, James Brown decides to light up in non-smoking.. The guy calls a F/A to have him put it out. The F/A asks him to put it out, or she can move him to the smoking section in FC.. JB says "I paid for THIS seat, I ain't movin, You can't make me.." Well, he put it out.. And a few minutes later lights back up.. The F/A comes back, and tells him again to put it out or move. JB says the same stuff, and then tells the F/A to go away...

The F/A goes away.. To the cockpit... Out comes Capt Haynes, who walks up to JB and says "Look. I know who you are , I know where you just came from. Either you put that out and do not light up again until you're off the plane or I will land this plane in Denver, where you will be met by the police, who will cuff you, stuff you, and throw you back in prison. You got that?" JB looks at the girl he was with and says "D'ya think he's being serious?" She just replied "YEAH!!!"..


Man, that story just made my day
Just thought I'd share.

That sounds about right as celebrities think they can do what ever they want when ever they want (in most cases, they do; after all- they're "stars"  sarcastic  ).

On a different note, I read in a Airliners Mag (I can't remember which one) where an obese woman filed a complaint against UA bacause her luggage tags had the letters FAT on them. Her destination was Fresno,CA, USA. The ticket agent tried hard not to laugh... rotfl . Poor ticket agent ...
