Why you're not allowed to play in the cockpit!
FLIGHT DATA RECORDER (FDR) TRANSCRIPTS:
Mechanic #1: "Hey Bob I really don't think we're supposed to be up here."
Mechanic #2: "Tony, you're such a worry wart. Anyhow, we're suppose to be up here remember, we're cleaning this bird."
Mechanic #1: "Are your sure? I thought they told us to stay out of the cockpit"
Mechanic #2: ""Hey look at me I'm a pilot!!!...(Deep Voice) Ladies and Gentlemen this is your captain speaking we're at an altitude of 30,000 feet and Oh my God watch out for that mountain.........Ahhhhhhhh (laughter).
Mechanic #1: Hey man cut it out....Hey don't touch that, it says "Engine Start" on it...
Mechanic #2: Don't worry....they always turn these things off while their at the gate. (Engine sounds in background....mechanics unaware)
Mechanic #2: Ready for takeoff......VRRRRRROOOOM VRRRRROOOOM (Throttles rapidly moved from idle to full and back to idle and full again) WEEEEEEEE!
Mechanic #1: Oh No, we're moving!!!
Mechanic #2: WE'RE GOING TO HIT THE WALL....RUN! (Cockpit door opens and slams shut. Occupants heard running to back of the airplane screaming and yelling)
30 seconds later......Throttles pulled back to idle.
(I Don't think these gentlemen have a job there anymore!!!)
There is also a PowerPoint presentation of this incident.
