Things that you do not expect your airline pilot to tell his passengers...

"I am not qualified to land the plane."

Okay, I can see how this one should be allowed to let slide. This is a pilot with thirty years of experience and of course he had landed plenty of times. It just happened that on this occasion he had to land in fog, which he didn't have the proper training and clearance for with the type of aircraft that he was operating. The pilot absolutely did the right and professional thing by turning around.

But still, I thought that was too funny not to post :-)
