A helicopter was flying around above Seattle "yesterday" when an electrical
malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic navigation and
communication equipment. Due to the clouds and haze the pilot could not
determine his position or course to steer to the airport. The pilot saw a
tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a handwritten sign and held
it in the helicopter's window. The sign said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters.
People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large
sign and held it in a building window. Their sign said, "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER."
The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map and determined the course to
steer to SEATAC (Seattle/Tacoma) airport and landed safely.
After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the "YOU
ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their position.
The pilot responded, "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building because
they gave me a technically correct but completely useless answer."
