Going to the airport is a character-building experience full of pitfalls and challenges: from waiting in epic lines, to taking off your shoes while someone yells at you, to paying $97 for three snacks and a magazine. But if you think going to the airport is a wild ride, imagine what it's like to work in one.
1.) From magic_zipper:
A little different, but I work Avionics on F-22s in the Air Force. Most of the work is done outside. One day on mid shift we get told to go inside, turn off the lights, and not look outside. Not knowing what the hell was going on, we obviously complied. Once everyone was inside, the big stadium lights that covered the entire airfield were turned off and all the entire airfield was dark. We heard low rumbling in the distance that was getting closer and rumors started flying. We were under attack, aliens, you name it. Eventually we could hear 3 large planes fly very low overhead and be gone. After 15 more minutes we were given the go ahead to go back outside and back to work. To this day I still don't know what the hell happened.
