WHAT IS HE DOING, Ehither he was fired or is testing the ditching hatch!

A visitor from Greece posted Fri August 29, 2014:
Very interesting photo,showing why pilots need to avoid becoming fat....

A visitor from - posted Fri April 4, 2014:
The photo give us the opportunity to make a wild guess. Graciosa is the name of the plane but also the name of a portuguese isle in Azores (Portugal). The plane belongs to SATA, wich is the name of an air company, a portugueses air company. Portuguese is not spanish!!!!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon June 17, 2013:
How ironic; the least graceful exit on an aircraft named Graciosa.... :P

A visitor from - posted Tue December 13, 2011:
I wonder how did he can get out from that small hatch,..

A visitor from Australia posted Tue September 6, 2011:
So who's the guy in the left seat? I'd say he is the Captain and it is the FO who is goofing off. Just because a pilot is balding with grey hair doesn't make him the Captain. Whichever pilot it is, for someone focused on safety it is a pretty stupid thing to do. Broken ankle here I come! Pax and plane grounded.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 27, 2010:
Ok, kids hood/roof surfing is stupid enough. This is just crazy!

Interesting to watch them practicing the escape procedure. Not something that happens often in reality let alone to have a camera nearby to catch the strange sight.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Sun June 6, 2010:
One important thing to notice, he failed to use the rope which is designed for this exact situation, and is stowed in the small compartment which can be seen through the open hatch. Many a Dash8 pilot have sustained injuries as a result of the final drop to the ground during this exercise!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon May 31, 2010:
No sweat! Not very graceful though. Or perhaps the plane is actually hitting a pedestrian!!

FO first solo lol

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 27, 2010:
He wants to top up his tan, Extreme Sun Bathing!

A visitor from Spain posted Sat March 27, 2010:
Could also be an emergency maniobra.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat March 13, 2010:
Hope this pic didn´t cost his job.... in my opinion it´s horrible, so many probes, the windshield etc. could have been destroyed... anyway, great pic

A visitor from - posted Fri March 12, 2010:
The question is, how did he manage to squeeze through the hole in the first place... i bet the captain had a laugh..

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 12, 2010:
Time to make the Donuts.

Getting out of a Dash in a dash

A visitor from - posted Wed February 24, 2010:
Maybe his mother-in-law was inside the aircraft...

A visitor from - posted Thu January 28, 2010:
He wants to slide. :)

A visitor from Argentina posted Fri November 27, 2009:
Haha this picture is very funny!! haha and in spanish "graciosa" means "funny" haha !!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 27, 2009:
In portuguese "graciosa" means "gracefull" and not "funny". It is the name of one of the Azores islands. But the picutre is funny indeed! Good timing Andr

A visitor from Indonesia posted Mon November 9, 2009:
Captain: Birds terminator procedure #2 please!.
1st Officer: Aye Capt!... go birds!!.. go away!!!.. *hussh!*.. *hussh!*.. Ok they were flew away Capt!. :-)

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Sun November 8, 2009:
This photo is even more interesting and funny because the plane is named "Graciosa" wich means funny

A visitor from Germany posted Sun November 8, 2009:
Locked himself inside and lost the key.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 5, 2009:
Cool hood ornament!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 5, 2009:
Looks like he forgot his doughnuts back at the gate

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 2, 2009:
Very good picture!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 25, 2009:
There's a ditching hatch on top...

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue August 25, 2009:
That was just a training exercise, because before the acquisition of this new type of bird, SATA Air A

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue August 25, 2009:
It seems that the captain farted which mafe the co-pilot to evacuate the flight deck through the emergency exit.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 24, 2009:
It doesn't even look as if the window to the cockpit is open. Perhaps he got on the nose from the outside...obviously for a legitimate reason.

Anyways, great shot!

A visitor from - posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Unbelievable! What a amazing, rare shot... Congratulations!

A visitor from - posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Why didn't they chose the slim pilot to do it - it would save on wear & tear, let alone paint scratches!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Wee hee! Great capture.
Lucky this fella got out through that little hole anyway.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Don't break the glass... they told us in training if you try to break the windshield with the ax, it will bounce back and get YOU instead...

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Well when you gotta go pee you gotta go!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Great capture of what could be captioned in so many ways.

"Marko could you please get that FOD off the nose? It's really bothering me and I don't like the look of it. Just use the heal of your shoe and don't worry, it's not like that time you did the same thing on that cargo 747. The fall will hurt far less this time if you slip."

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon August 24, 2009:
This is brilliant. This is nature and nature, but then in two ways. Firstly a mechanical bird perfected so that it is almost a true bird. Secondly a guy who masters the bird, so also nature., but who forgot his own nature since he didnt really train his own body. Perfection and imperfection and perfection again......

A visitor from Poland posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Excellent Photo!!! I guess it must be pretty hard to get such one. Five Stars.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 24, 2009:

A visitor from Belgium posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Great capture. Can't believe why he's doing that!
I presume aicraft is taxying, captain still on board.

A visitor from - posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Graciosa or "gracioso" (means funny in spanish) for the man who are in the windshield :)

A visitor from - posted Mon August 24, 2009:
The first officer is praying he doesnt crack the windshield.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Good photo and perfect timing! Also a brand new way of cleaning wind shield with your bottom!!


A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 24, 2009:
That shot shows the emergency procedure when the door is locked or has fire inside. Excelent timing!

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Ladys and gentlemen please refrain from leaving via the cabin doors as this may impede the pilots rush for dinner... thanks for flying air Acores.

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon August 24, 2009:
In case of emergency, BREAK GLASS

A visitor from Spain posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Pilot on duty! you just gotta love this picture. He's clearily makin a good use of the airplane's name (Graciosa = Graceful)and walking out the plane in a graceful manner ;P

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Good Job!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 24, 2009:
Really funny one.

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon August 24, 2009:
This could be some kind of training, this aircraft is new to SATA and is starting service 07/2009 , they use to have an Dornie to make the inter islands conections, so with this new plane, they have to test all, so i guess is training :)
