Two blind pilots

Two blind pilots board the plane wearing dark glasses. One is using a guide dog and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.

Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes and the engines start up.

The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. No one is forthcoming.

The plane moves faster and faster down the runway and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport.

As it begins to look as though the plane will plough into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.

At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly and soon all retreat into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.

In the cockpit, one of the blind pilots says to the other, "Ya know Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die".

I can make these jokes now that I'm back on the ground again.

What I want to know is how they managed to get the passengers to scream as they approached the airport to land.

Neo suggested that that was what the guide dog was for....

Thanks Trillian!

It was a pretty good day given that I'm well past the point of looking forward to birthdays.

wys! When was your birthday? MY kids' birthdays are BOTH next week, those crazy Saggitarians.

I think you're a year or two younger than me: Therefore, you're still a kid. Cheers and all that!
