Then, the pilot's voice drops slightly but is still loud enough for everyone to hear, and he mutters, “…where the hell are we going?” After an eternity of silence, the pilot recovers and announces the correct destination, Chicago. But the best part? Everyone on the flight found the pilot's little blunder hilarious and laughed.
