Came here to post the autopilot pic from "Airplane". I see I'm not needed. Close thread, turn out the lights.

The confusing 'use' of extra 'quotations' makes this 'article' seem a little 'funny'.

Oxygen to my cockpit? Penis pump, stat!

Never been in a plane. Never will if I keep reading stories like this one.

What landing at Heathrow doesn't look like.

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Jut an FYI. Oxygen does not make you high.

Fight Club got one wrong.

I just want to tell you both, good luck. We were all counting on you.

Does too. Also, not enough and you're gonna die (you die).

Uh, just wondering, why don't they have the O2 up there? Or were they like the passenger kind in the ceiling of the cockpit and only drop on loss of pressure?

Did they have the fish, or the chicken?

Randy: Excuse me sir, there's been a little problem in the cockpit...
Striker: The cockpit...what is it?!
Randy: It's the little room in the front of the plane where the pilots sit, but that's not important right now.

It may just be a case of mistranslation from the Bulgarian via Azerbaijani:

He goes on to say that there were a number of 'worried faces' among the flight attendants who he saw with a oxygen cylinders and said the plane was soon heading back to Heathrow 'at great speed'.

Since the reporter obviously can't speak a word of any human language, he may not be accurately reporting the facts as they occurred.

They had the lasagna.

Headline: "BA passenger jet makes emergency landing after both pilots 'pass out' at the controls"

First paragraph: "A British Airways jet was forced to make an emergency landing after both pilots almost 'passed out' at the controls." (emphasis added)

Thanks for the accurate headline, guys. It's a good thing "almost" is an optional word in a case like this. Katrina kills 10,000; Fukushima blows up; McCain beats Obama. We don't need a word so silly as "almost".

Of course it doesn't.

They're travelling the banks of the river of Jordan, to find where it flow to the sea...

It's important to note that TFA is from the Daily Fail.

Well, you know, "British Airways jet makes a safe landing after both pilots almost didn't lose consciousness after touchdown" just isn't as revenue-generating.

Aircraft oxygen problems have been all over the news lately. They can't keep the F-22s flying because of a "design feature" that keeps cutting oxygen off to the pilots.

hypoxia. how does it happen?

Either because of not breathing, or insufficient air from what I've heard.

Maybe he only speaks jive.

Where do you go when you're blue?
I'll follow you
When the pilots go bluuue

So, how sealed ARE the cockpits? Are they on their own recirc? If I vented something into the cabin air, does it end up in the cockpit? How often is the air turned over in the plane?

So they both were women and were feeling faint but no problems were identified after a systems check! I'm guessing it was one of the IDtenT problems where they're both hyper-suggestible hypochondriacs and got the "vapors." This happened in an ER up in LA where there was some unpleasant odor going around suddenly the nursing staff was "overcome with fumes." Unfortunately no cause was ever found despite air samples and extensive tox screens being run on all the "victims."

An emergency happens, the crew handles it effectively and nobody gets hurt. This scares you, why?
