Things not always as they seem

I received this today from a friend, claims it is true.


A WOMAN was flying from Seattle to San Francisco . Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.

The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, "Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"
The blind lady replied, "No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs."

Picture this:
All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.
People scattered. They not only tried to change planes,
but they were trying to change airlines!

True story... Have a great day and remember...

I love the story but unfortunately snopes.com says it has been around since the mid 90s and is false.

False it may be. but FUNNY it is, and educational too.

Thanks O/P for the laugh. And the lesson.

I would rather have a blind pilot than an asleep or involved in other activity pilot.

Why be afraid ?? Those flyin machines is all run by lectrinix anyhoo, right ???

The thing I have learned to fear is a 90 yr old, drivin a lincoln towncar on the Interstate at 30 mph and believin his turn signal is his head..."turn eyes to look as ya turn"... these can make your day as you attempt to get away from them without scrunchin the 4 wheeler in the next lane, or try to stop 22,000 pounds while grandpa comes to a near complete stop making his unsignalled turn. Thank You Bendix, even if ya do stick and waste fuel !!!!
