Head In An Airplane

Head In An Airplane - Siblings

“The child with the pilot is my husband. His sister is in the background, for some reason, with her head in an airplane. We refer to any sort of pouting due to personal shame as a “head in an airplane.”

    When I saw that caption, I thought it meant that the boy was really into fighter pilots, not jets.

  2. linglingo says:

    I’m fairly certain that Krang is piloting this jet….”Shredder, we have to get the Diamonds! And Please remove that childs head from the engine before I wreck this thing on takeoff rar ar rarrr”

  3. HoneyBrownDame says:

    is it just me or does the face in the cockpit seem like it might belong to the girl who looks like she got her head chopped off in the background? c—r—e—e—p—y

  4. hotiniraq says:

    maybe one of those photos kinda like the movie “three men and a baby”, where the little boy is in one scene and then he isnt as they walk across the room…. kool, but creepy

  5. C-bot says:

    Holy crap, i think that girl is me.

  6. Meredith says:

    a possible more appropriate title might be “dead head”

  7. Sarah says:

    I don’t see the creepy red face!! Can somebody help me here?

  8. Kiki says:

    I laughed so HARD, LOL and your post.. ” billy is my son now-you go stand over there..lollllllll

    and that is not her third arm, its a red flag or paint, but freaky it could pass as a third.

    • Scotty-joe says:

      Good eye. No it’s not her 3rd arm lol. I’m in the Air Force. And I work on this jet specifically, and their is a safety pin they put in the landing gear so it won’t collapse/fold. And there is a long bright orange strimmer to show it’s installed or not. Again good eye!!!!

    My GOD.
    This picture is amazing.
    Almost horrific.
    Love it.

  10. emm says:

    its all fun and games until somebody loses their…head.

    scene from “Iron Eagle IIII”

  12. Maya B. says:

    I’m not going to judge; I totally hate getting my picture taken, too.

  13. James says:

    check out the hat on the kid in the background!

  14. Don says:

    The ground crew could only shake their head in disbelief. Captain Robert “Too Low” Smith had done it again. When would he learn you can’t fly that low over a playground? Amanda would have a story to tell around the table tonight…once they unstuck her from the landing gear.

  15. Raine says:

    She is actually a ninja – thats why she is so hard to detect!

  16. mark says:

    What you need in here is some 2 in 1 oil, some gauze pads, and some ball bearings.
    Ball bearings?
    What do you need, a refresher course? Its all ball bearings these days.

  17. E says:

    Hahaha, this one cracked me up, for reals!

  18. wendolyn says:

    What REALLY got sucked into the engines of the plane that landed on the Hudson River

  19. Liz says:

    It took me a few seconds to “get this” and until I did, I was looking for all sorts of sinister meanings in an innocent photo. Look what you’ve done to me Awkward Family Photos!

  20. Jeff M says:

    What popped into my mind was Spike TV’s “World’s Most Amazing Videos” where the guy actually got sucked into the jetfighter engine….. AND LIVED!
    Any moment I’m expecting a giant WHOOMPTH! and girls feet disappearing.

  21. Ashley says:

    “I’ll distract him with a photo while you sabotage his plane.”

  22. laurie says:

    Shhh. You can’t see her if she can’t see you!

  23. DM says:

    it looks like she has three arms….. now that’s awkward.

  24. Holland says:

    I think there was maybe supposed to be an emphasis on the word “he” in the caption. So something like this, “And you thought HE was really into fighter jets”.

  25. Pinky says:

    Billy is my son now – you go stand over there.

  26. Tim says:

    Enough is enough! I have had it with these monkey-fighting heads in this Monday-to-Friday plane!

    Kenny Loggins: “Fly into the Awkward Zone, take a ride in to the Awkward Zooooone!!!!”

  28. eriknyc says:

    and the girl in back seems to have three arms…right?

  29. AllAboutDave says:

    Something must be awful interesting inside that flap.

  30. Kate says:

    What’s awkward is the ‘stash the pilot is rocking. Picture must of been taken during moustache March.

  31. m says:

    This happens all the time in air shows and pageants. Just a pic of some boy with some pilot and there happens to be a girl looking into the plane ’cause, yes, there are alot of people at these things and they are there to see planes up close…Not awkward

  32. Megan says:

    Sarah was angry that Jimmy wouldn’t let her in the photo w/ the pilot…so she decided to ruined his special photo by inventing photobombing, which will be the all the rage in 20 years.

  33. Etraking says:

    I was about to complain for the first time that this is not awkward…until I saw the little one getting sucked into the plane lol

  34. Nate says:

    Is it just me, or does it look like the kid with their head in the plane has three arms?

  35. Scott says:

    I want to know why the kid in the background as an extra arm???

  36. pingham says:

    with her stealth observation skills, she tawt she taw a puddy tat

  37. Natalie says:

    It’s like when you’re watching the news and there’s a live-feed and someone walks across the background and then stops because they realise they’re on camera but stays within shot.

  38. ryanboy says:

    this isn’t even awkwarddd. wait! that kids head is in the plane!

    • Rae says:

      I want to know why that kid has 3 arms!

      • exploder says:

        That’s not an arm; it’s one of those red “REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT”
        hoohahs that appear in various places on most aircraft when they’re on the ground. I’m a bit leery of The Blob in the cockpit, though….

      • The Scott says:

        I think she has 3 arms. Definitely 3 arms. I don’t know about you, but I could always use another arm. I wonder which one is the dominant hand, though. Are you right, left or really left handed.

    • Jessica says:

      its like she stuck her head in the lower part of the plane and there’s a vortex that makes it pop up in the cockpit…SPOOOKY!

  40. Erica!!! says:

    That pilot looks like Grant Hill….

  41. Braden says:

    I thought the caption was talking about the eery red face in the cockpit….

  42. Sthrn_Gal says:

    Um…that’s not a “he” in the side area; that’s a “she”.
