An unexpected flight safety briefing

The airline my wife works for as a cabin crew member, Air New Zealand, has produced a delightful new flight safety briefing based on ‘The Hobbit’.

The elfin stewardess in the video isn’t my wife – though she too would’ve looked the part!

Here are some screenshots:

    What a wonderful video, sir. I thank you very much for the link.

    • Yeah, I like it – and each time you watch it, there is something more to see – the Eye of Sauron, for example; or the way the Captain’s “Fly, you fools!” is a famous tagline from the LotR movie.

  2. That just bloody marvellous! 🙂
    Had a game of LOTR down at club tonight. Great fun ! 🙂

  3. That’s coincidental, Scott!

    Have you also seen the huge sculptures at Wellington Airport (Gollum fishing) and on the NZ Post building in town (the dwarves and hobbits on their journey)?

  4. How delightful, wonderful stuff.

    Looks great especially the guy holding the ring and the gremlin in the aisle – although I don’t think the weapons would have or should have made it past security!
