The US government needs new cabin crew for their suspicious fleet of unmarked Boeings …
Are you strong, good public speaker, level-headed in unfortunate situations and willing to maintain a secret of the highest significance? Plus, do you love conspiracy theories?
If so, now is your time to achieve your potential as a US government-owned top secret fleet of Boeing 737s is looking for new flight attendants.
The job would be agent Mulder’s undercover dream. The unmarked planes that take off from a shady terminal at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport known to the world as Janet, are believed to take its passengers to the most iconic place for conspiracy theories hunters around the world – to the infamous Area 51.
The whole situation couldn’t be more suspicious. Janet is said to be an acronym for Just Another Non-Existent Terminal, and it serves military personnel only. It has been home to the 737s, coloured in white with a prominent red cheatline, since 1972 when the first flight to the Area 51 took place.
The job description itself raises questions. At first, it resembles a similar position at any other airline. According to the official posting, the successful candidates’ tasks will be to brief passengers on aircraft emergency and take care of onboard comfort as usual.
The requirements category of the job description holds the more interesting information. Apart from being a high school graduate or equivalent, good public speaker and physically strong enough to manipulate 80lbs aircraft doors, the candidates also have to know basic maths and have computer skills.
And most importantly, they must be willing maintain a top-secret government security clearance and associated work location access.
They will also have to “be level-headed and clear thinking while handling unusual incidents and situations (severe weather conditions, including turbulence, delays due to weather or mechanicals, hijackings or bomb threats).”
In other words, they should be prepared to expect anything. And everything.
