|11/30 -- MSNBC.com had a cute article on
Patty Smart's retirement from Alohah Airlines after 50
years of service. The best part I thought was the
description of the prankster pilots.
"One time, she got into a
tight spot when her skirt flew out the window.
As she was serving pineapple
juice to passengers, she spilled it all over her
uniform. She changed into a pair of pants and washed out
her skirt in the lavatory. When she tried to air-dry the
skirt by letting it flap in the breeze from the cockpit
window, one of the pilots snatched it and let it fly out
"I wanted to kill those
two," she said. "I wanted to get their two
heads together and whack them. They were laughing and
The joke didn't stop there.
Another pilot on the next flight out radioed her plane
and teased that he had caught the skirt as it went
flying by. Other pilots also heard the radio report of
the flight attendant who lost her skirt, and the story
quickly traveled around the world."
