1. "Hey…do you know why mechanics and marshallers line up and wave their hands when the aircraft is about to take-off?  

    Aside from waving at the passengers, the real reason is the unspoken message to the pilot, saying “This aircraft was serviced with care by us…So put your mind at ease and take flight.

    When the pilot waves back..the message is, “Roger. We’ll take over now for a safe flight."  - Kondo (Tokyo Airport Episode 06)


    I just had to post this one. Tokyo Airport is a great series…Every Aviation enthusiast or those who aspire to be an Air Traffic Controller should watch it.
