The Sun- WATER cascades through a cabin at 30,000ft in terrifying scenes on a jumbo jet. Towels and blankets were frantically placed on the floor and around the emergency exit door to try and stem the flow.
A steady shower of water fell from the ceiling of the Airbus A380 during Flight BA292 from Heathrow to Washington DC. Stairs at the front of the plane leading from the First cabin up to Club World seats were also drenched. Crew members were soaked trying to mop up the water and passengers scarpered to dry areas of the plane.
Hundreds of litres of water from one of the jet’s supplies was washing around the plane towards the end of the 12-hour flight.
There have been plenty of complaints about flying published on this here website. Long security lines. Battling for the armrest with a stranger. The chance you may get your ass beaten now that everyone is flying extra angry. But I think this is the first time I've seen a plane leaking like an audience when Big Daddy Trent rolls in.
Even though hundreds of people may have been worried about their airplane turning into a flying aquarium or even a flying fireball if some of that H2O hit a wire that is not supposed to get wet, I feel like this will end up being a good thing for the passengers on that flight. You know why? Because I guarantee they are never going to complain about all the shit I talked about in that first paragraph ever again. Suddenly sitting in a seat with a broken TV or dealing with some heathen that went barefoot. Plus getting a view of a waterfall is a nice way to break up the monotony of a 12 hour flight not to mention that clean water spewing everywhere on a plane is muchhhhhhh better than blue water.
Ahhhh who am I kidding? That must’ve fucking sucked. But as someone with young kids that can never fly anywhere except during the most expensive times due to school, I have to admit that watching all this chaos at the airports and on the airplanes is kinda entertaining since I'm stuck on the ground for the foreseeable future. Especially when a fancy boy like Large is fired up because he is stranded in Alabama like a modern My Cousin Vinny.
