not5am: Mentat: You're asking if Snakes on a Plane is obscure? On Fark?

65 comments in and i'm the only one that brought up this reference (which is closer than all the airplane! references) and at 99 comments no one else brought it up.

I missed the part in TFA that involved fat black men and/or snakes.

/including fat black snakes

buzzcut73: parkke0108: trappedspirit: Actually those things can pretty much land themselves

What I want to know is how they found out about the off-duty pilot. "Um hello, is anyone a pilot?"

What really sucks is that co-pilot just lost his medical and most likely his job.

If he was deadheading home on another airline or flying non-rev (which most airlines allow other airline employees to do if there is space) it would show up on the passenger manifest I would imagine. That's my best guess anyhow.

/Short CSB: I know a retired United 747 captain that flew home to Rochester NY from Denver via Memphis thanks to FedEx when his mother suddenly took ill and was about to die. He made it back in time.

That's what I thought too. No way they'd announce this over the intercom and scare 300 people. Try to get the guy who knows what he's doing help with the checklist and turn to the Purser or something in a worst case scenario.

/Still say they bought their tickets and knew what they were getting into

Moose23: I've landed many a jumbo jet on Microsoft's Flight Simulator. If I was a passenger in such a situation I would readily volunteer my services. Same in a medical emergency. I've done a few transplants in Operation.

There was never any danger because they were flying on instruments.
