Breakfast Flakes Airplane Disaster Stories

This morning, The Flakes were talking about the turbulent flight from Denver to Billings that sent five people to the hospital. Both Mark and Paul have had similar experiences on planes.

Mark once sat next to a pilot on a flight from Denver to Billings several years ago.  The pilot told him that while turbulence can be frightening, passengers are not at risk.  Today’s aircraft are equipped to handle much heavier storms.  The Pilot also mentioned that flights to and from Denver often experience high winds due to the proximity of the airport to the mountains.

For Paul, the worst thing about air travel is his queasy stomach.  It’s all fun and games until the person next to you gets sick, then it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be blowing chunks too.

Mark joked that diarrhea and a window seat are two things that just don’t belong together.  Paul said the most unfortunate person on a bumpy flight is the guy who has to throw up after the other guy with diarrhea just vacated the restroom.

The Flakes disagree on a lot of things, but there is one thing that Mark and Paul both believe.  If they are ever on a plane that has to make an emergency landing for any reason, it’s a sign from above.  It doesn’t matter if they’re both 1,000 miles from home, they’ll go “havesies” on a rental car and drive back to Billings.
