Friday Wisdom – Flying

Yesterday we went out to the Reno Air Races so today here is some wisdom about flying:

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but two Wrights did build an airplane.

I got sick at the airport. My doctor said it was just a terminal illness.

A good landing is one you can walk away from. An excellent landing is when you can use the airplane again.

When flying, the only time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire.

Be careful when flying into clouds as the silver lining might be an airplane flying directly at you.

Pilot math: Always keep the number of your takeoffs equal to the number of your landings.

I wrote this great flying joke, but I think it’s over most people heads.

You don’t need a parachute to skydive. You need a parachute to skydive twice.

Will invisible planes every be a thing? I don’t think we’ll see them take off.

The propeller is just a giant fan to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually see the pilot start sweating.

The smaller seats in airlines are now causing passengers to get jet leg.

I was going to buy an airplane, but they wouldn’t let me keep the hanger.

A friend of mine said he’s going to buy a plane, take the wings off and turn it into a restaurant. I don’t think it will take off.
