I was flying between Toronto and Ottawa. It's only a 9 minute flight and so, to save money, I flew with a small airline in a little, twin-engine plane. About two minutes into the flight the pilot announced that we were going to have to turn back due to some engine trouble.
The nervous passenger I was seated next to turned to me and said, "If we lose an engine, how far do you think the other one will take us?"
I told him, "One engine? Oh, I'm sure it'll take us all the way to the scene of the crash. We'll probably make good time too. I bet we beat the paramedics there by at least a half hour."
