So he just inflated the autopilot? On the plus side, at least now he has an idea how it all goes down.

What's that smell?

I don't know how to transfer funds from an offshore account. Somebody wanna lend me some money and advice?

When you fly with Foster Brooks Charter Airline, things like this can happen.

He probably just hit the "Land Me" button, which I've used myself in Flight Simulator.

Love the Foster Brooks bump Le Pet!

Don't they know the pilot should never eat the fish?

I'm guessing he'll never have to pay for his beer for the rest of his life.

Passenger: "I have no idea how to fly a plane."
Controller (doing his best Al Giordino impression from the movie Sahara): "Consider this your flight training. It's kind of pass-fail, which I always thought was easier."

This guy is my new hero. I can't believe how calm he sounded.
