How many people can say that they did an emergency evacuation of a smoke-filled airplane cabin, slid down an emergency slide, did a water evacuation, and still capped off the night with happy hour on a 757 with 150+ of their new best friends?

Here is a quick preview of the slide evacuation. I did it three times because it was so fun! (though I clearly never want to do any of this in a real emergency situation)

It is all in a day’s work on a MegaDO. We are now on a bus taking us to Boeing to see where the “big daddy” planes are made. I am excited like a kid in a candy store. I promise to share many more details about the events very soon, but I have been tweeting lots of updates from the events, so follow me @mommy_points if you want live updates.

Let the airline adventure continue!

    no joking matter using the emergency slide. Why would any sane person call this fun??

    Its there to save lives…

    In most situations you are totally right, but these events give you a chance to learn about safety while still having fun, too.

    If a plane does an emergency landing and evacuation, I wonder if you still get credit for the full scheduled miles.

    Did anybody hit that wall at the end? That would have been a Kodak moment.
