    Re: Navigation jokes

    Here’s one that was popular a decade or two ago.

    A helicopter was flying around above Seattle yesterday when an

    electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic
    navigation and communication equipment. Due to the clouds and haze
    the pilot could not determine his position or course to steer to the
    airport. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew
    a handwritten sign and held it in the helicopter's window. The sign
    said "WHERE AM I ?" in large letters.

    People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a
    large sign and held it in a building window. Their sign said, "YOU
    ARE IN A HELICOPTER." The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map and
    determine the course to steer to SEATAC (Seattle/Tacoma) airport and
    landed safely.

    After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the
    "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their position. The
    pilot responded, "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building
    because they gave me a technically correct but completely useless
    answer."
