Where am I

Recommended Posts

A helicopter was flying around above Seattle

yesterday when an electrical malfunction disabled all

of the aircraft's electronic navigation and

communications equipment.


Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not

determine the helicopter's position and 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 pilot's 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, determined

the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed



After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the

pilot how the "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped

determine their position in Seatle.


The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the

MICROSOFT building because, similar to their

help-lines, they gave me a technically correct but

completely useless answer."
