A pilot’s ACARS April Fools’ joke

We had good fun covering how aviation celebrated April Fools’ and thought we were done, but this last prank was too good to pass up.



A pilot with a North American carrier says on Twitter that he sent this message below to his airline via ACARS (along with a note saying “Happy April First”).

He also says, “I told all my passengers today we were going supersonic. I said it was only allowed on April first. I think most of ‘em believed it.”

    Many years ago, on an early 1 April flight out of Buffalo heading to Atlanta, the Captain got on the PA, wished us all a happy April First, and then started announcing the weather in Toledo, and our arrival tme there. Surprisingly, a few passengers didn’t get it, and became quite concerned.

    Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
