While cruising at 36,000 feet, the airplane shuddered, and a Weegie passenger looked out the window.
"Awe naw!" he screamed, "Wan o' they engines the engines just blew up!"
Other passengers left their seats and came running over; suddenly the aircraft was rocked by a second blast as yet another engine exploded on the other side.
The passengers were in a panic now, and even the stewardesses couldn't maintain order. Just then, standing tall and smiling confidently, the pilot strode from the cockpit and assured everyone that there was nothing to worry about. His words and his demeanor seemed made most of the passengers feel better, and they sat down as the pilot calmly walked to the door of the aircraft. There, he grabbed several packages from under the seats and began handing them to the flight attendants.
Each crew member attached the package to their backs.
"Hey Mister," spoke up the Weegie passenger, "Are those no' parachutes?"
The pilot confirmed that they were.
The passenger went on, "But I thote you said there wisnae onything tae worry aboot?"
"There isn't," replied the pilot as a third engine exploded. "We're just going to get help."
