Air_Ceylon_Douglas_DC-8_at_Zurich_Airport_in_June_1977An old DC-8 Air Ceylon is coming in to Colombo, Ceylon from Bangkok. The landing approach was pretty bumpy, but the biggest bump was saved for when it hit the tarmac – a massive shudder and shake – at least passengers hoped it was the runway…

They were soon however airborne again and climbing steeply when a voice with a heavy accent came over the PA as follows:
I am sorry about the landing ladies and gentlemen, the pilot will now take over.


  1. Mmmmm Who was in charge then???? And… Where was the pilot, in the toilette, with a lady passenger, with the stewardess may be….????
