Are Wonderful Media! AS MD-80 Coverage

Wed Jan 04, 2006 6:59 pm

Just had this pointed out to me by a co-worker. Look at how this guy got a shot of our MD arriving back at SEA-TAC with the whole in it. Funny thing is, its on the wrong side of the A/C. Media at its finest putting a spot on a file photo.

John Nance, wow he sure knows his stuff.....idiot!

1) Are Our
2) whole hole
3) No pic.

Sorry guys I wrote this at 2am and forgot the link. And N754PR , you'd be upset if they did this to your airline to. Look at this link. Someone took a pic and added a little white spot like its the hole in th A/C. Problem is it on the wrong side of the plane from where it actually happened.

Well . . . .reading the article is entertaining - aside from the bastardized photo . . .

""Almost reminds of George Carlin's comedy routine on flying . . .

We tell you we'll be "on the ground in a few minutes" without reassuring you that we fully intend to achieve that grounded state in a perfectly intact airplane (versus a pile of scrap aluminum).

In flight, we warn you about worrisome things we're going to encounter up ahead called "turbulence" (English translation: bumps in the air), or we occasionally land someplace short of destination because of "fuel constraints," forgetting that the common interpretation in the passenger cabin will be that we must have forgotten to bring enough gas.

And, as if all that wasn't enough to reduce even frequent fliers to quivering Jell-O, we tell you we "expect" to arrive at our destination at a certain time, leaving you to wonder darkly why we're not sure.
