Interesting story.

As usual, the press can't be bothered to find accurate pictures of the aircraft in the story.

 

Editor (or whatever they're called): How many engines are on a 777?

Person in room: Two! How many in the picture you have?

Editor: Two! K. We're good!

Sacrilege! How can you mistake an A330 for a 777? I mean that's like comparing a schoolbus to a Porsche.

You'd think...then again, here's your standard bystander ID Guide:

Big? Boeing

Small? Regional jet

Small prop? Scary (sometimes people will call them Beechcraft)

Smaller jet? Learjet (yet they all know what a Gulfstream looks like on the ground - thanks rap stars!)

Small prop? Cessna

 

I think I've trained my friends into reading the safety cards to let me know what they flew, so most of them are pretty good now.

That is so true!!!

 

At least they got the size of the plane roughly correct on CNN, down here in Oz, they showed a short clip of an E-175 to accompany the story. I almost laughed, especially as the news reader said "air canada 777" just as they showed the clip.
