Three Planes Almost Collided Above The Reagan National Airport!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

US Airways almost had three planes collide in air

So scary!

Three planes flying above the Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. almost crashed into each other on Tuesday due to "miscommunication."

What could have been a disastrous incident occurred while air traffic controllers were making adjustments for landing and departing aircraft because of bad weather. 192 people aboard the three planes were just 12 seconds away from colliding at 400 mph!

Thankfully, the tragedy was avoided. The Federal Aviation Administration explained the situation by saying:

There's A Snake On A Plane IN Australia! Seriously!

snakes-on-a-plane-in-australia-web.jpg

Australians are tired of these monkey fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!

A flight leaving Darwin got a slight and slithery intruder in the cockpit. A snake was chillaxing on the radio control button of the plane.

Pilot Braden Blennerhassett knew what he had to do….

Call Samuel L. Jackson air traffic control.

Blennerhassett landed the plane back in Darwin and told the controllers about his stick situation. He says the following on the matter:

turned [the plane] around and got it headed back towards Darwin there and said, 'Look, you're not going to believe this. I've got snakes on a plane.'

The controllers didn't believe him…until it was too late he asked for a snake handler.

The wranglers boarded the freight plane but by then, the snake had disappeared! Luckily, the handlers were able to find the snake days later.

The coast is clear…for now!

The Car Of The Future Is SOO Eco-Friendly Thanks To Leaves And Sunshine!!!

Filed under: Tech TalkMama Nature

artificial leaf technology

WooHoo!! We LOVE the Earth!!

Simulating the way leaves harness the energy of the sun, scientists have a discovered a way to use "artificial leaf technology" to possibly powers ships and planes…. and even cars!!!

According to Professor Richard Cogdell:

What you need is to be able to lock that energy up in some sort of storage fluid that’s available on demand, and that’s what fuel is. To really sustain our way of life after the oil runs out we have to be able to make, renewably and sustainably, dense portable fuels for transport, especially for aeroplanes and ships. We’re looking at photosynthesis to see whether we can learn to copy it in a more robust and efficient way. What we’ve realised in just the last couple of months is that we should be able to use electricity to power these reactions. I would be very disappointed if this wasn’t working in the real world in 30 years time.

Uhm, ya!!

We'd be totes disappointed too!!

Oil is soooo last century!! Time to be smart about the way we use our energy!!!

Looks like you won't be having anything extra for your dinner on Alaska Airlines anymore.

The airline has stated it will remove its prayer cards from its flights starting February 1st.

Alaska Airlines has given the cards to passengers since the 70s.

They stopped giving them to coach passengers in 2006.

Alaska Air Group CEO Bill Ayer and Alaska Airlines President Brad Tilden said the following on the new policy:

North Carolina Family Gets Kicked Off Plane For Trying To Fit Six People In Three Seats

family-kicked-off-plane-for-too-many-kids-web.jpg

Nice try.

A Charlotte Family tried to fly to Chicago for the holidays but got the boot when they tried to sneak a few extra children on the plane.

Kathy and Jason Fickes purchased three tickets from US Airways; one each for the adults and another for their 3 year old.

They also have a 8 month old and 20 month old twins. Six does NOT equal three.

They managed to get pass security with only three tickets and it took a flight attendant to point out the obvious math problem.

The attendant told the family a child needed to be moved and a passenger behind the Fickes offered to baby sit.

Next, a passenger in first class offered to buy them an extra ticket. Still no dice.

After 40 to 50 minutes, the Fickes were given their walking papers.

Kathy Fickes says they were discriminated against for having too many kids.

Yeah, you have too many kids, that's the whole point!

US Airways states instructions on young children on their website which the Fickes claim they didn't see.

Note to readers: Read the instructions before boarding a flight.

Fighter Jets Deployed On 9/11 Threat!

Filed under: Etc.Sad Sad

American Airlines Fighter jets

The passengers of an American Airlines flight were in for one hell of a ride yesterday!

On the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, some passengers spent a little too much time in the restroom.

Naturally, what with the psychological stress of 9/11, this caused some disturbance.

The flight was headed to New York

With three men constantly going in and out of the restroom, passengers on board became wary. Different crew members and at least one passenger even swore they saw the men give each other hand signals as they merry-go-rounded the lavatory.

After important communication was made, fighter jets were deployed to accompany the plane on its journey.

But, thankfully, all turned out to be well.

As the plane made it's destination safely, the FBI was ready to interrogate the men on their suspicious behavior.

After questioning, the feebs determined they were innocent of foul play. Phew!

But we wonder… it's easy to let one's imagination get the best of them, and flying on 9/11 is sure to stir all sorts of paranoia, but why did multiple members on board see attest to seeing the same thing with the hand signals?

Hmm, a little psychology homework for ya!
