Japan OKs 787s to fly again

Japan has authorized passenger airlines to resume Boeing 787 flights in the country starting Friday, the ministry of land, infrastructure, transport and tourism said.

The move follows the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration's posting of the Airworthiness Directive for Boeing's 787-8 online Thursday. The directive goes into effect upon publication Friday in the Federal Register.

    A young and foolish pilot wanted to sound cool on the aviation frequencies. So, this was his first time approaching a field during the nighttime. Instead of making any official requests to the tower, he said: "Guess who?"
    The controller switched the field lights off and replied: "Guess where?"

    In 1940 two men were flying from New York to Los Angeles on what was then a new DC-3. The left New York and when they landed in Philadelphia, a red truck drove up to put fuel into the wing.

    A little while later, they landed in Pittsburgh and, again, a red truck pulled up to fill the tanks with fuel.

    Each time they landed to discharge or take on passengers, a red truck would pull up and add fuel to the tanks. Finally, after landing in Kansas City and seeing truck pull up again, one said to the other, "we sure are making good time."

    Said the other, "yes, we are, and so is that red truck!"

    Ba Da Bhoomp Chiiiinnnnnggggg.

  7. Airplanes can't fly

    It is against the laws of physics for such large objects to fly. What you see in the sky are mere projections from government facilities.

    If any of you have ever been on a plane, guess what, you were fooled. The CIA gave you LSD and did experiments on you. The vacation memories you have were really hallucinations!
