I once sat on a plane with the same Myo Nyunt, the Rangoon Commander. You
called him a well-known brain with a 4th standard education. I agree: half
an hour after our departure, the captain of the airplane mentioned through
the intercom that there was a problem with one engine. "Engine number three
has failed, so we shut it off. Soince we have four engines, this should be
no couse for alarm. We only wish to inform you that we will arrive twenty
minutes late." Myo Nyunt stares out the window.
Maybe an hour later the captain is heard talking over the intercom: "The
second engine has just been shut down. There is no reason to be alarmed, but
you may be interested to learn we will be at least an hour late."
All the passengers start discussing, but Myo stares out the window.
Halfway through the flight the captain comes up again: "We are sorry, but
now the fourth engine is no longer working. This will cause a delay of about
two hours and a half. We have already informed the airport at the destination."
At this point Myo Nyunt turned to me and said: "Lets hope the last engine
holds out, or else we will never get down."
