    “Oh good heavens George, I am not backseat driving again. If anything, I’m front-seat piloting.”

    Thunderbirds are GO!

    houston we have a problem…..

  4. Rory says:

    I do find it odd that the yokes mirror one another almost perfectly. Perhaps whoever set up for this photo had the yokes locked for symmetry rather than realistic appearance?

    There’s a SALE at PENNEY’S!

  6. Cheryl says:

    Would you like chicken or fish?

  7. Steve says:

    “I just wanna tell you both, good luck. We’re all counting on you.”

  8. Everything about the Spruce Goose is insanely huge – you could hold a chorus line in that cockpit!

    “I was over Under, but you were under Dunn!”

    Actually, if you look closely at the top of the mother’s hand, I’m pretty sure you can see the top of a red lever just like the father is holding onto.

    But the fact that it’s the same colour as her jumper & thus LOOKS like she’s holding onto nothing is what makes this photo awkward, so no harm, no foul here. 🙂

    Thanks to the comments of this picture – I am now desperately looking around my house for the movie “Airplane!”

    First thing I thought of: “What’s your vector, Victor?”

  12. Victory says:

    The dad and two boys are holding onto steering wheels (I know that isn’t the correct terminology but you know what I mean), mom is PRETENDING to hold onto a steering wheel even though her seat doesn’t have a wheel in front of it.

    That is what is so awkward. Mom just has to be part of the steering action, even when she doesn’t have anything to steer…

  13. Joe says:

    Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
    Ted Striker: Surely you can’t be serious.
    Rumack: I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.

    Following the pilot strike, Uniteds Human Resourses Department has had to tap less conventional manning pools.

  15. Deb says:

    Where’s Karen Black when you need her?

  16. coNNie says:

    Is the boy on the left taped to the window?
    Or is it just photoshopped?

    Each kid is turning the plane in opposite directions. I’m not sure but this can’t be good. Think I’ll take a bus.

  19. RikJ says:

    It’s The Spruce Goose!!!! Been there done that! ha ha!

  20. JerseyPam says:

    ‘Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?’

  21. Jerome says:

    to be fair this isn’t awkward enough, they all seem to be genuinely content.

      It’s slightly awkward that the mom is sitting there smiling while also pretending to be holding onto the non-existant co-pilot yoke/steering wheel. 😀

    “Captain, your navigator, Mr. Unger, and your first officer, Mr. Dunn. “
