A helicopter carrying passengers across lake Michigan suddenly lost engine power. The aircraft came down safely in the water, and the pilot instructed the passengers to remain seated and to keep the doors closed.
“In emergency situations, this aircraft is designed to stay afloat for 30 minutes, giving rescuers time to get to us,” the pilot informed his passengers.
Just then a portly middle aged man got out if his seat and made and attempt to open the door.
The pilots screamed at him, “Stop! Didn’t you hear what I said? The aircraft is designed to stay afloat as long as the doors remain closed!”
“Of course I heard you”, the man replied, “but it’s also designed to fly, and look how good that one worked out!”
