So you’re fumbling with your luggage, iPod/phone, and a bag of chips and then it happens. You’re clumsy self drops your phone. What makes matters worse is that it slides across the floor and into an air vent…out of sight. The trifecta? You’re phone was meaning the captain isn’t letting anyone leave until that ticking time bomb of radiation is found and switched off. For one unlucky flyer of Jet2, these very events played out before his eyes. After dropping his phone and watching it slide and bounce into an air vent, the next three ours of his life, as well as everyone else aboard the plane — which had just landed by the way — got to sit back, relax, and watch airport personnel and flight crew tear apart the cockpit and first row of seating. Definitely not a minor annoyance. Naturally, being in the aviation biz, having some falsified fears about wireless signals is mandatory. Hence the reason the el Capitan wouldn’t let anyone leave nor the plane take off with the radiation leaking device onboard. This story does have a happy ending as the individual’s phone was eventually found. Ending the multi-hour saga, the captain reminded everyone to leave their phones off until they reached the terminal. I[‘m sure Mr or Mrs. Butterfinger will be a tad more careful next time.
