PhotoHunt 96 : Heavy

Heavy is this week's theme. While boarding my plane yesterday morning, I saw the plane and thought of making it my subject for this theme.

Commercial Passengers Airplanes are no doubt very HEAVY. Despite their heft and even with hundreds of passengers and tons of cargoes in them, they can still fly. Thanks to the Wright brothers - Orville and Wilbur.

PhotoHunters

This is the picture of the Boeing 747-400, which I took from Manila to Cebu City yesterday. The passengers of this plane had HEAVY feelings because our flight was delayed by about one hour and a half. Snacks and drinks were served to these passengers to lighten their feelings.

They may be heavy, but the skins are thin. Which is why I won't fly: I am scared of it. You're brave.

*groan* Oh yes, flight delays - ya gotta love them. Well, you don't gotta, but you know.

And you're right, there is nothing heavier than knowing your flight is going to be delayed, which likely means you'll miss your connecting flight ... *sigh*

This is definitely a heavy machine! I used to worry, my weight would bring the entire plane down!! ha ha ha...

Great translation of heavy!!!

Katney said...

Hey, we were delayed five hours once. But it was a twelve hour flight, so relatively short delay in comparison.
