Passengers on a plane are waiting for the flight to leave. The
entrance opens, and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilot
uniforms. Both are wearing dark glasses. One is using a seeing-eye
dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle with a cane.
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter
the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start. The
passengers begin glancing nervously, searching for some sign
that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and people
at the windows realize that they're headed straight for the
water at the edge of the airport.
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off,
that it will plow into the water, screams of panic fill the cabin.
But at that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says,
"You know, Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream
too late, and we're all gonna die."
