    THIS….. made me laugh SO hard! Ahhahhahahahhaha! Awesomeness!!

    I would love to replicate this pic only have my mother-in-law hanging from the plane window and my husband and I waving goodbye and smiling! That would be a keeper! Blow it up, and put it in the Living room, framed!

  4. HippieDippie says:

    Dad was also in the previous picture..

  5. Rick says:

    I told her not to read my diary!

  6. seogi says:

    not too dangerous in this one…the girl can almost touch the ground

  7. megan says:

    If you look to the right, the backdrop seems to curve out along the side, as if the front is slightly slanted forward, maybe she’s leaning or sitting on something. I agree, it doesnt look like they are holding her very tightly. Cute picture.

  8. David says:

    This pic should be banned, erased and forgotten by the lot of us! Just think of it, posing a little girl like that without her parachute on… me the creeps!

  9. carol says:

    That. Is. Awesome.

  10. Trisha Lamb says:

    I think this was a cute idea..And I love how the girl hanging out played along and made a funny scared face..

  11. Patricia says:

    Not awkward, but definitely classic!

  12. Ludmila says:

    Ok…ok… i Confesss.
    I am the girl out of the Plane 15 year ago, and riding some of the coments i want to tell that i was not so high, the flor was just behind me hahaha. So we were in a trip in Brazil and we saw this poster, but just two people fit in, so we have the funny idea to take the photo like that, i made this funny face to get better reality. =) It was a nice trip!

      What a great childhood memory. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    • LFraser says:

      What a great photo! I love it. Thanks for sharing ;-)

    • BigE says:

      Well, from all the comments, you are a good actress! Some thought you were really scared, but I didn’t think the others in the photo would be that happy looking if you were actually scared. So, it’s a great photo, never seen one like that, and looks like a great vacation memory! Thanks for sharing, it’s a classic!!

      • MS says:

        That’s the GREATEST! You guys look like you’re having a blast- forget the negative comments. They’re just jealous. :)

  13. Noneya says:

    I love this picture. It is one of the most adorable family pictures I’ve ever seen.

  14. Julia says:

    I’m so glad this pic was published! I told my friend to send it to this blog just after she published on her orkut (“Brazilian” facebook). That’s no photoshop. it’s just awesome, and that’s the nicest fun family ever!
    I wish I had fun family pictures like this!!

  15. Miss Shegas says:

    Most awesome family photo. EVER.

    Damn my parents and their Olen Mills, THIS could have been our Christmas card.

  16. Bryan says:

    ok ok so I don’t blame the parents, I mean I’ve 2 little kids and I’ve done portraits. By the end you start to think, “yeah yeah, whatever. Just don’t hurt my kids and get me out of here.” But I’m questioning the ‘designer’ of the prop? Who designs this for pictures? I don’t think they let you get drunk at airshows right? I think security worries about the bad press when a naked drunk guy runs into a spinning prop. Realistically though who else would think that setting makes a good photo opportunity besides a drunk airshow spectator. Ah yeah, we’re at the airshow, let’s get a family photo…oh how about that stupid fake cockpit?

  17. It’s very clear who’s the “favorite” daughter in this picture. XD LOL!

  18. Alan says:

    Just plane good fun.

  19. Anne says:

    Well, we’ve finally learned why Marnie has so much hatred for her family.

  20. eve says:

    I can’t believe people are saying this is cute! the kid is obviously really terrified and is about at least 8 feet off the ground.

  21. meve76 says:

    Love it!!That’s so funny
    thanks AFP for making my day …just before I go to bed^^!

  22. Julia says:

    Clearly we can see who is the favorite!

  23. chris says:

    I LOVE it!

  24. Anne says:

    Well, this will save the one child lots of time (and potentially money) in therapy down the road; when the psychiatrist peers over his glasses and says, “So, tell me about your relationship with your mother and your sibling,” she can hand him this photo and let it be worth a thousand words.

  25. carol says:

    I like these people! I don’t know them, but I like them.

  26. Minnie says:

    This is dangerous. How could AFP post such a picture? They should be ashamed of themselves. Unsubscribe!

    • Boppie says:

      You’re so right, Minnie! The least AFP can do is collect money to send to the aid of that poor, bucolic little town destroyed by the giant sneaker of that monstrous little girl…

    • terry says:

      the only thing dangerous is you tellin people to unsubscribe. if you dont like it, dont look!!! y take it away from everyone else. its people like you that make the world a bad place. because minnie doesn’t like something, it has been decided to not be liked by everbody, therefore none shall have. thanks minnie

    • Kevin says:

      Could someone tell Minnie that that’s not a real plane!

    • Steph says:

      I seriously hope you’re being sarcastic.

    • Lily says:

      erm, this is awkward.
      Look again.
      The only danger here is that there is a foot dangling from you mouth.

    • lemurqueen says: are a twit…bet your kids had NO fun growing up…

    • Jenny says:

      Strange – I don’t remember subscribing to AFP. Does anybody else remember? And seems to me that in order to see the pictures, I have to click my mouse on specific icons in a specific order. Wouldn’t that constitute “voluntary”? So Minnie, please return your computer to the “Real Stepford Wives” and leave us alone!

      • Kristin says:

        I would like to point that I have subscribed to AFP through Google Reader. The pictures just show up in my reader. So technically I can unsubscribe and not see the pictures. Which is what I would think Minnie is referring to.

        I also think Minnie needs a reality check. That picture is just good fun.

    • Jennifer says:

      I find it amazing that the parent police are out for a picture as mild as this one.

    • Sammy says:

      Poor Minnie. Nobody got her joke. She was clearly kidding (it’s so common to post things like that here, so she was poking fun at that).
      No worries Minnie, a lot of us got it.

  27. kay says:

    After their plane crashed in the rockies, the Donner family wasted no time deciding who got wings and who got legs.

  28. yolanda says:

    Funny! It’s funny because it’s deliberate awkwardness. The kid’s expression is perfect, she’s an excellent actress! I guarantee her bottom foot is only as far from the floor as the bottom of the picture and she was more likely helped up than dangled down. Very clever!

  29. El & Mo says:

    I NEED, NEED, NEED to know where I can go to get a photo like this done!

  30. Rico says:

    I know this poster very well , it is from my hometown back in Brazil Pocos de caldas…its about 40 years old the poster, but people are always making funny pictures like this one…

  31. Kimberly says:

    This picture is all manner of awesome.

  32. cheez_wiz says:

    All of these airline cutbacks and surcharges are getting ridiculous.

  33. Beth says:

    I thought this was hilarious, until I saw the little girl’s face!!! That is something my family would def do to me, Im the baby and the only girl with two brothers.

  34. taino sam says:

    we’re over your spot. tuck and roll!

  35. Zita says:

    I agree. This isn’t awkward at all! It’s cute and funny =)

  36. Bonnie says:

    Not awkward, but it sure is hilarious! I love it!

  37. Kritter Krit says:

    I love how the mom and daughter in the plane look like it’s just another day at the Gap.

  38. Julie K says:

    Yep, I use this website for ideas for the next family photo… Because classic awkwardness is better than future awkwardness.

    And if you saw my family… you’d know that the photo is going to be awkward..

    • El & Mo says:

      Well if your family is anything like mine, just one look and the Adam’s Family theme song pops right into your head.

  39. Lori says:

    Haha! That is AWESOME! Where is that photo op located so I can take my family there pronto?

  40. Tim S says:

    Always a good idea to wear your seatbelt when the plane does a slow roll.

  41. arrarr says:

    l like this one, too. Not awkward, just a fun picture!

  42. francis james says:

    Is it just me or is there still some eliment of danger with how high this girl is from the ground? I think she’s really terrified. Either that or this is clearly a photoshoped picture.

  43. Vicki says:

    It may be a little awkward, but it’s so CUTE!

  44. Melissa says:

    I think this picture is pretty funny. Looks like the family is having fun.. not too awkward

  45. Modine says:

    From far away it looks like a cute picture. I can’t tell if the little one is smiling or not. At least it doesn’t look like she’s screaming and trying to claw her way back up.

  46. She_forgot_her_parachute says:

    I think this picture is adorable! 0:)

  47. xandria says:

    Is that the step-child they are dangling out of the plane?!?

  48. sascia says:

    Thats not awkward, thats awesome!

  49. Rachel says:

    Possibly one of the best things I’ve ever seen.

  50. Jennifer says:

    I don’t know why but I love this picture. I would do this with my family.
