The Funniest Airplane Safety Demonstrations [VIDEOS]

Who says airplane safety has to be a somber matter? These airlines have fun with the tired in-flight procedure, from rapping through oxygen mask instructions to demonstrating proper storage of overhead luggage in the buff. C

Turkish Airline Safety Video Performed by Cute Kids

If you're a frequent flyer, you've probably zoned out during quite a few airplane safety demonstrations. Pegasus, a Turkish airline, brilliantly eschewed the usual bored flight attendants for some seriously adorable kids. The tots, dressed as attendants, passengers and even an aviator-clad pilot, walk us through proper seatbelt buckling and how to operate an oxygen mask with panache.

Whee! Dutch Transit Authority Installs Playground-Style Slide on Train Platform [VIDEO]

Morning commutes just got a lot more fun in Utrecht. Recent renovations to a train station in the Overvecht neighborhood of the Netherlands city included the installation of a slide (their transit authority calls it a "transfer accelerator"), which passengers can ride to the platform instead of taking the adjacent stairs.

See it in action in the below clip:

Buford, WY Has a Population of One – Meet Its Only, Lonely Resident [VIDEO]

Feel like getting away from it all? Then consider moving to Buford, Wyoming, where just one man, Don Sammons, comprises the town's entire population. The 'Today' show profiled Sammons and his determination to keep his town alive.

Low-Flying Planes Soar Scarily Close to St. Maarten Beach [PHOTOS]

When most people plan a Caribbean getaway, their to-do lists might include a little snorkeling and some colorful cocktails -- not sunbathing so close to arriving aircraft that they're forcibly blown into the water by the jet stream.

Well, that's exactly what happens at St. Maarten's Maho Beach and apparently, the tourists actually like it. Its close proximity to the airport and the short runways make it necessary for planes to fly as close to the ground as possible while they're coming in to land. Beachgoers flock to Maho in droves to see and photograph the planes, while adventurous windsurfers make it a point to catch the large waves generated as the planes go by.
