A Happy Hanukkah and a WAY TO GO BEAVERS GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, Beaves did it winning soundly beating up on the Flo-Rida Gators! Well done Beaves! Hopefully the PAC conference will show up this bowl season!
Monday Musings Ed-vise today. Cause it’s MONDAY! So GET AFTER IT!
A Hawaiian Air flight from Phoenix to Hawaii encountered some turbulence and sent 20 people to the hospital!
I don’t know how many of you have experienced some serious turbulence on a plane. But it SUCKS!
Talk about feeling absolutely helpless. The plane jumps and bucks; slides left and right then, falls. OMG! That fall. You don’t know if you fell 10 feet or 10,000. It just happens all of a sudden. Suck Fest! Every time I fly east, I encounter some degree of turbulence. Especially crossing the Mississippi and landing in Chicago.
Back in the day (whatever day that was), there were people in the airport selling life insurance policies. An actual salesman. Offering up a short term policy for whatever particular flight you might be on. They cost around $20 bucks I think. For like $100,000 in insurance. Pretty good scam to play on someone’s fears. Especially if they encountered turbulence like on that Hawaiian Air Flight.
But that was small scale considering in April of 1988, Aloha Airlines had part of the plan actually come off.
On that flight, the first class roof literally ripped off the plane in very turbulent weather. So you had a bunch of passengers sitting in the open air at 30,000 feet. Only one fatality with Miss Clarabelle “C.B.” Lansing being sucked out of the plane. Her body was never recovered.
There were some serious injuries but, other than C.B., everyone survived.
How did it happen? Turbulence mixed in with…shortcuts and poor maintenance. Long way around saying poor company culture.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember the Frosty was going to get married until his fiancé…FLAKED ON HIM! HAHAHAHAHAHA…flaked…HAHHAHAHAHA
