Tired of the inconvenience of driving from the airport to
his country cottage, a man equipped his small plane with
pontoons so he could land on the lake directly in front of
his cottage. On his next trip however, he made his approach
down the airport runway as usual.
Alarmed, his wife cried out, “Are you crazy? You can’t land
this plane here without wheels!” The startled husband yanked
the nose up, narrowly averting certain disaster.
Continuing home, he landed the plane on the lake without
mishap. As he sat there, visibly shaken, he said to his
wife, “I don’t know what on earth got into me. That’s the
stupidest thing I’ve ever done in my life!”
And with that, he opened the door and stepped out … right
into the water!
