i used to think the PTU Dog Bark on the a320s were just flight attendants bickering

Ight, lemme start off. This time, we were pushing back in an A320, and… yes… I heard that barking sound, and I thought the plane was gonna crash, or do something else, I can’t remember what I was thinking, but that’s the only stupid thing I remember thinking of… boring, right?

Let’s see…
I thought that planes were a mere couple thousand feet above the ground
I thought that the cockpits were pretty much like the driver’s seat of a car
I thought that anyone could buy a ticket to be the co-pilot of a plane
Also not so much of a misconception, but was I the only kid that threw my hands up on landing like I was on a roller coaster? I just thought it was so thrilling

I didn’t really know the difference between planes.

I thought flying was simple. (Until I watched an X-plane YouTube video. After that I was like “I don’t know what an APU is!!!” I do now so it’s fine.

I thought Southwest Airlines flew only in the Southwest part of the U.S.
