Twofer Tuesday. Philosophically Speaking, Of Course.



If a volcano erupts in Iceland, and no one in Hong Kong can hear it, does it still screw up your travel plans?

Judging from these birds stranded far from home, you bet!

Totally "Jacked Up" Video.


And now for something completely different. We put this one under the heading of thinking outside the box. Video may take a bit to buffer, but stick with it, as it is one cool show.

Now, imagine your surprise when the hydraulic mule will not work and a gear swing is imperative. What to do? Simply fire up the engines while the plane is "Jacked Up," thus utilizing the engine driven hydraulic pumps, and viola! Problem solved.

And yes, it is Boeing approved.
