It’s happened to all of us. Your plane takes off, you sit back… and then you get a sickly feeling as you look out of the window. And no, it’s not because of the sandwich you picked up at the airport.
You are surrounded by cloud, and all the while you’re wondering: what’s to stop us crashing into another plane and create some fiery scene of ruin you always see in Michael Bay movies?
The video below explains all. It shows two pilots taking their plane in to land at Dublin Airport in Ireland. It also shows how said pilots use all those hugely expensive gizmos in their cockpit to make sure everyone gets off the plane with all their limbs even when fog as dense as Paris Hilton surrounds the aircraft.
Stick around for the kicker at the end. One minute there’s a huge blanket of fog… and the next minute the runway is staring you in the face.
