No Cause For Alarm

I vividly remember seeing a tv skit almost verbatim identical to this one some time in the early to mid-1970s; but the actors were Americans, the flight attendant was female, and the main POV was head-on rather than from the side. Does that ring a bell with anyone?

    It’s certainly not word for word, but isn’t there a bit in Airplane or Airplane 2 in which a bored cockpit crew simulates turbulence to see how passengers will react?

      Maybe. That’s not it, though, since those movies came out in the 80s.

    It rings a bell with me. Not sure if the actors were American, but I definitely remember the female flight attendant and the head-on POV.

      Ah, so I’m not crazy. (Or we both are.)

      I thought it might be the Carol Burnett show, which I used to watch in the 70s, but websearches only turned up other airplane skits by them.

      That skit was my first introduction to the game “I Spy.”

        I remember the female flight attendant saying “They all jumped out” in a sad tone of voice, not as here.
