Blind pilots

A plane is preparing for takeoff with a full load of passengers when the pilot and copilot board–both with dark sunglasses and tapping walking sticks for guidance. The passengers are understandably uncomfortable, but assume it must be some sort of practical joke, so they say nothing.

As the plane begins to accelerate, the passengers see the end of the runway rapidly approaching, with certain doom awaiting at the end if the pilots really can’t see what they’re doing. Just before the end of the runway, all the passengers scream together–right before the plane lifts off. They’re a little upset, but relieved that the pilots aren’t really blind.

In the cockpit, the pilot turned to his copilot and remarked: “you know, Lou, one of these days they’re not going to scream in time, and then we’ll be in real trouble!”
