A blind pilot is flying this plane?
I was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. By the time we took off, there
had been a 45-minute delay and everybody on board was ticked. Unexpectedly, we
stopped in Sacramento on the way. The flight attendant explained that there
would be another 45-minute delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we
would re board in thirty minutes.
Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. I noticed him
as I walked by and could tell he had flown before because his Seeing Eye dog lay
quietly underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight. I
could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot
approached him and, calling him by name, said, “Keith, we’re in Sacramento for
almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”
