Flight 1549 Spurs New Sport

Written by Illusnist

Sunday, 25 January 2009

Intrigued by the miraculous non-fatality emergency landing of a commercial airliner last week, people all over the world have adopted a new sport: Wing surfing.

Wing Surfers everywhere are flocking to their local airfields, and pushing small and large planes alike into the nearest body of water. After that, the fun is just getting started, as entire groups of friends jump onto the tops the wings, and "ride the airwaves, dude!" as one participant was heard to yell.

Safety groups are in an uproar, as the sport seem to be rivaled only by ice hockey for number of injuries suffered, and the initial cost of the playing surface is prohibitive for amateurs. If you have access to a plane, and can afford to replace the wings often, this may just be the sport you have been waiting on to liven up your life.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
