(BBC)   Amsterdam plane situation is NOT a situation. Authorities blame it on miscommunication between the tower and plane. Apparently, saying "Hi, Jaques" when greeting the tower operator is a bad move   (bbc.co.uk) divider line 28

I'd say congratulations, but really, you have to be quite odd to have more than a couple, let alone 900 ;)

I've been on Fark for a decade and just got 9. Never really thought I had much of a life but I guess in comparison I do.

Subby, do you like movies about gladiators?

FTA: Earlier, part of Schiphol was been closed and flights delayed after a suspected World War II bomb was discovered by workers digging near Pier C, which connects the main plaza with Departure Hall One.

Not a good day for the Amsterdam airport...

On the plus side, at least you're not into 4-digits worth yet. Now those people need some serious help.

There's rumor, then there's false reports.

If you have someone squawk 7500 in FAA coverage, even briefly, you're going to see some tight sphincters until someone can calmly inquire about the health of things. But these days the cabins are supposed to be locked off, so terrorists probably aren't about to hijack planes to where they can seize the cabin.

If terrorist wanted to hijack an airplane these days their best bet would be to charter a cargo carrier, like a 747-400, and load a mock cargo and a few armed "specialists" to fly with the cargo.

So you work in the control tower? What a coincidence!!

Somewhat related, I heard once that if you hear 4 cabin chimes - that 'ding' noise as cues for flight attendants - that there's trouble aboard. Any Farkers in the know can confirm this?

Not a pilot or attendent, but I do know that they function as a kind of code, mostly for turbuance. I would imagine that there would be a "lawyers, guns and money" code as well.

Are you at Schiphol airport? Please send us your stories and pictures using the form below.
Bad name for an airport, or any place. Too easy to mistake that 'p' for a 't'.

I have a grand total of 8 but one of them was a Caturday. Since I'm not Totalfark, I had to watch my Caturday thread build up a couple of hundred comments between the time I submitted (Thursday) and the time it went to main without being able to read any of it.

//but not frustrating enough to spend $5 I guess
