Flight of fancy

I have always been very fascinated by planes, and wished to be able to see one up close and personal, and examine their innards. Some of this craving got satisfied when I was a little curious kid flying with my parents and the pilot overheard my questioning and offered to give me a peek into the cockpit (that was years ago, I am sure it wouldn't be possible now). More recently, my sis took me to the wonderful Air and Space museum in Washington D.C and I all but swooned. But imagine being able to touch and feel a real Boeing 737, right in the middle of the street? Apparently the folks at Chembur had the good fortune.

Link from this really funny blog who in turn got it from this funny guy.

I seriously wish I were there!

Most hilarious piece of news that I have read in the recent past... Thanx for the link :)

Oh, by the way, to the person who asked whether it was Washington or Chembur, a certain song and Govinda come to mind... No prizes for guessing the song... but guess away here...

hello Dr. TGFI!
I am an old timer here but seem to have come here after a long time- looks like you changed urls or something.

Seems like you have finally graduated! :-) I still remember reading a post on "so, when are you going to graduate?" a long time back. Good to know you are done! Congratulations.

I flew a plane for 30 minutes. the instructor let me take off and set it up for landing... he took over on the landing itself! it was a lot of fun.

Keshi said...

I see 737s close up all the time...there's a highway in Syd that's under the Airport and planes always land on top as u drive underneath.

Keshi.

In Chembur, Mumbai :D
I did Lajjo, long before it was out in the news! I was on my way back from Chembur to Lokhandwala when I saw it on the way, at Dharavi. It had this tiny blue stiker on it and both, D & me were arguing if it belonged to 'Go Air' or not :P

Sakshi said...

@TGFI - Where are the rants?
We demand pictures!
We demand posts!

Rebellion said...

Nope I didn't Lajjo!
First only D calls me one mad kid. If I'd make a fuss to climb into it, while it rested on a container truck, he'd disown me :P:P:P
