In honor of this crazy storm I have decided to offer some shock value to GodSaveThePoints to showcase some serious skill and some seriously sh***y conditions to land in. Even though flying is literally 12x safer than getting in a car, people panic about taking to the friendly skies, and in weather like this I don’t blame them. Fear not. Did you know that pilots are required to fly for over 1,500 hours before they even get an interview to become a pilot? Did you know that they have to be a co-pilot on the type of plane they are flying for over 1,000 hours before they get to take the pilot seat? Flying is truly the safest way to travel. Sit back, relax and enjoy the fact that you are not sitting on a plane while watching this. Oh and if you are, stop reading and leave the page now.
For anyone affected by the storm, I offer my apologies for your delays. No one likes to wait and hopefully you are getting the compensation or upgrade you deserve for being stuck! Did you know that airlines get to prioritize which of their flights fly when a storm is coming? Its true. Say an airline had 100 planes to take off in a day and the airport tells them they only get ten because of the weather, the airline gets to choose those ten, so next time you get stuck blame the airline, not the weather. Cheers!
