I’ve been on that plane

Damn, I’ve been on the Alaska Airlines flight that lost pressurization. That’d be interesting enough, but a citizen journalist covered the whole thing on his blog and with a cell phone camera. Details on Memeorandum (link 1, link 2). KomoTV has video from inside the plane shot by passengers. Wild. Every disaster now will be covered in real time by people involved.

The comments, though, don’t make me feel all that great. Where’s Mena Trott when you need her?

  3. Scoble, what a far-reaching attempt to associate yourself with a news event.

    I fly the same Boston/LAX route that was used during 9/11, but I’d never even think of putting “I’ve been on that plane…” into a story.

    Geez, slow workday at MS?

  5. er… what the hell is a “citizen journalist” other than a redundant term? How many journalists in this country are non-citizens?

  7. Ever since Alaska laid off all their ground crew and farmed it out their overall fight operations have gone downhill. Severe flight delays, interminable waits for baggage claim. It’s no surprise that something like this eventually happened. Sad, really, since they used to be a great airline.

  9. Alaska Airlines IP addresses … kind of reminds me of my incident with CompUSA and I got a call from someone claiming to be a reporter from The Tacoma News Tribune. Turns out it was all a lie.

    Smart for Jeremy to check the IP addresses of those negative comments. MSM should run a story and realize tha with an IP address much can be learned these days …
