Unusual Flight Stories – LAX Shooting
Everyone has their story, the unusual event that happened, the funny thing that tripped them up. Here is a good one from Captain Moonbeam:
Yes, I bet you didn’t see THAT coming! That story trumps my best one, but I’ll get it out anyway. Flying commercial into LAX a few days ago, nothing happened out of the ordinary. At first. Touched down, taxied to the gate, and then the captain gets on the intercom and announces that we cannot deplane but that we have plenty of food, water, and working lavatories on board. That is never a good sign! ))) What happened, you ask?
Yes, I happened to arrive at LAX a few minutes after there was a hoax shooting. Got to spend 45 minutes sitting in the plane and then work my way through the jam in the airport and at the curb. Took another half hour until traffic started moving and the shuttles could get through. So, what is your most memorable flying-related story?
