Technology and Iphones

I got this from the one, and only Mister Christer. He got it from a pilot Friend. What a hoot! Enjoy!

I got this from a Friend of mine who is a Helicopter
Pilot for Airlife of Denver, I am not sure where he
got it but it is pretty damn funny.

Subject: I-Phone weatherman

Oh joy! I can’t wait for the next ground delay or long
taxi due to weather somewhere to get a smart ass with
a freakin I-phone shoving it in my face saying “It’s
NOT raining there… SEE !” Too late…already
happened to me. We push back, get advised of a ground
stop in MEM due to storms in the area. Go to the
penalty box and wait. My Captain does the lecture over
the PA… not one minute later, we get dinged from the
F/A “Some guy with an IPhone says the weather is good,
and wants to know what the real reason is for the
delay. Is something wrong with the plane?”

I want to tell this clown what he can do with his
IdiotPhone – but the Captain does it even better. He
gets on the PA and makes the following announcement :

“If the passenger with the IPhone would be kind enough
to use it to check the weather at our alternate,
calculate our fuel burn due to being rerouted around
the storms, call the dispatcher to arrange our
release, and then make a phone call to the nearest Air
Traffic Control center to arrange our timely departure
amongst the other aircraft carrying passengers with
IPhones, then we will be more than happy to depart.
Please ring your call button to advise the Flight
Attendant and your fellow passengers when you deem it
ready and responsible for this multi-million dollar
aircraft and its 84 passengers to safely leave.”

Needless to say, the pax was pretty embarrassed. The
F/A later told us the rest of the plane was outright
laughing at this dude. What a clown
