A couple of days ago Andrew shared with me a link to a documentary called “Flights From Hell: Caught On Camera.” It’s clearly targeted at a UK audience, and examines all kinds of airplane and airport related incidents, ranging from fights breaking out to mechanical problems. To be honest, I had seen most of the individual clips before at one point or another, though I find it interesting how they formatted this, and that they included commentary from psychologists, etc. It’s not the deepest show ever, but I found it enjoyable to watch.
Here’s the video:
The most interesting part, which I hadn’t yet seen, is about the guy with tourettes. My gosh, it has to be really tough to fly if you have tourettes. At the airport he’s yelling “I’m stashing cocaine,” “bomb,” “I’m a terrorist,” “AK-47 in my back pocket,” “I’m part of ISIS, I swear,” “I want to have your babies” (to the flight attendant), etc. (for those of you who specifically want to see that portion of the show, it starts at 3:15).
Anyway, if you have some time I highly recommend giving the show a watch.
