Flying in to DFW one night , our pilot aborted ( not gently ) multiple ( 2 or 3) attempts . due to side winds. We circled for while, they had to reset all the flights to
land in a different direction. Loud cheers when the plane touched down safely.

I rode a tanker out of panama that had max fuel. it used every foot of that runway to get up.

Legal takeoffs are overrated....CFL be damned

...I’m Not quite following this one

Really? The plane might have been hit with a strong gust of wind and floated then landed long on a wet runway. The pilot noticed his position and instead of trying to force a bad landing chose to do a touch and go. It is way easier to get back up to take off speed than to dig one out of the mess after running off the end of the runway.

Once upon takeoff the pilot came to a stop and said one of the engines was not running. He said he had to run down the runway to start the engine. I don’t know if this was true to this day. In any event after the run down the runway we were able to take off. I often wonder if the non English speaking lady sitting next to me clutching a rosary and praying out loud helped. This was in simpler times when SW was brand new.

Ugh...ok...put the popcorn away. I’ll leave this to y’all.

A lot of these stories are far fetched if you have any experience in flying airplanes. These stories are making aircrews seem like buffoons and that’s just not the way it is.

I already get a little anxiety when flying. Use to not bother me until we almost crashed and ran out of fuel (whichever were to happen first) in the Bahamas in a tropical storm. Now anytime there's turbulence I get a little nervous

The landing gear indicator did not show it as locked down. They explained it as a manuaver to check it make sure it would hold.

If you are calling me a liar you can kiss my azz.

Never had an aborted landing, even though I had a couple that seemed like they should have aborted. The winds in the Middle East played havoc on landings. I did have one get hit by lightening according to the pilot. Quite a jolt.

No azz kissing required. That’s what I thought I read. Unsafe gear indication. Land to make sure the gear is down, take her airborne again to bring it around and land again...

Exact same thing for the exact same reason happened to me when I was flying home for Christmas. Our pilot was a little nonchalant about it when he came on to tell us what happened and why. He said, “so we’ll just loop around and try again. No biggie.”
