A few years ago three pilots wanted to set a world record and fly nonstop around the world.
Thier nationalities were Russian, American, and Belezean. After setting out they immediately flew into some real bad weather, not having much in the way of navigation equip, they were totally lost. After much discussion about there actual heading versus time and distance they still didn't have a clue where they were, then the Russian said he could figure out where they were, he rolled up the arm of his flt suit opened up awindow and stuck his arm outside for a minute. After bringing his arm back inside he announced that they were over Siberia, theother two looked at him and asked how the hell he came up withthat. He replied that his arm was quite frozen and for the temp to be that cold they had to be over Siberia. 6 or seven hours went by and the American said that it was his turn to figure out where they were, so he rolled up his sleeve and stuck his arm out the window. After bringing his arm back in he said that they had to be over Detroit, when asked how he could tell he answered that his arm was covered in soot and that only Detroit has that kind of air pollution. Well they flew on and on for another 6 or seven hours and the Belezean announced that he would figure out where they were..so he rolled up his sleeve and dangled his arm out the window for only a couple of seconds, brought his arm straight back inside and announced that they were flying over Belize city, when asked how he could tell he raised his arm and said "look" my watch is gone....
Reality..What a concept!
