Ol’ Pops Dawson had been a cleaner at Brisbane Airport as long as he’d been cleaning, but had never been in a plane. So it seemed natural when he saw the pilot’s hat and jacket behind the desk at the gate that he would just try them on in the walkway.
When he boarded the plane he remembered not to look too joyful, and when he slipped into the pilot’s seat and put headphone on, he happily replied to the control tower:
“Uh…yeah, this is Tango Lima 332 ready for departure.”
He okayed the purser’s request to close all doors and let the copilot fire up engines.
Captain Olson, returning from the bathroom, was somewhat perturbed to see his jet pulling out of the stand.
