Old Joke

My brother who is a crop duster and who is sensitive to pilot jokes  about rough landings, reminded me of an old one last night.
A little old lady shuffled up the aisle of the plane on her way to get off.  She stopped by the pilot at the door, tapped him on the leg with her cane and said, "Sonny, are you the pilot?"  He replied politely and proudly that indeed he was.  She said, "Well then I have a question about our landing,  did you actually land the plane or were we shot down?"

Good one, Cliff. And those granddaughers of your's get better looking and more charming every year, don't they?

I hate to fly and believe I could have asked that question to every pilot I have flown with. (Don't tell all the pilots in our family.)

Dad always said it was a lot easier to fly a plane when you weren't being shot at.

My grandfather asked, "How come when you are up in the air you slow down and when you're close to the ground you have to go like a bat out of hell!?". It would have been fruitless to even try to begin to explain the perspective. LOL.
