Summer Learning Journey - Day 2 - Boarding the Plane...And Plane Safety!

Hi, reader, welcome back to the Summer Learning Journey posts, in which I was still allowed to participate in.

The first task for today, since Curious Kiwi (his introduction is here) and I are boarding a plane to Germany (the destination/country I chose, the post is below for why I chose Germany), was to: watch the Air New Zealand in-flight safety video. It is called “Men in Black” and it’s based on a movie called “Men In Black.”. Once you have finished watching the video, go to your blogspot and list three things that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane.

So after watching the video, I know that to stay safe on an airplane during its flight, I need to:

  1. Make sure that I don't smoke during the flight, because, and I just know it, it could be dangerous during the flight.
  2. Switch off gadgets, or turn them to flight mode before the flight begins, and turn off transmitting functions (Bluetooth and WiFi)
  3. In case of an emergency landing or take off (I don't know if it includes take off but oh, well) you should brace yourself against the seat, or place your hands above your head, with your elbows right beside your legs, having your feet firmly on the floor.
And just one more...sorry for the paragraph saying "1." when it should say "4." but oh, well...
  1. Lifejackets are in easy reach by beside your seat, and to get it you just need to rip back the tag, place it over and make sure you get your head through the gap-hole-thing-that-you-should-put-your-head-in, and clip the waistband. Don't forget to tighten it! The red tab inflates your lifejacket, but ONLY pull it when you exit in an emergency. And for more inflation, blow the mouthpiece that is also on the lifejacket.

Good morning Willy!

It is very clear from your blog post that you watched the 'Men in Black' video in great detail. That's wonderful! You picked up on many of the most important safety issues that Israel Dagg, Stan Walker and the rest of the All Blacks crew was trying to convey. Did you have a favourite part of the video? I always enjoy watching the latest Air New Zealand safety videos. They have staged a number of elaborate videos in the past 5 years but the 'Men in Black' is one of my all-time favourites!
