And yet another reason why I Don’t fly.
So, apparently while over the North Sea, A member of a british air ways 747 crew accidentally hit a button that played this message over the Intercom. “This is an emergency. We may shortly need to make an emergency landing on water,”. Seems kinda stupid to have a button for that in the first place. I mean, surely you can have the presence of mind to have someone up there to actually say it through an intercom. I know that theres alot of buttons to try and remember all of them and what they do, but really, how hard is it to say into a headset, “were about to crash”? but I don’t fly anyway so i don’t have to deal with that! (HAH!)
