Just plane fun: Hamish & Andy’s emergency slide dream comes true


In the year’s final episode of the Hamish & Andy podcast on LiSTNR, Hamish Blake and Andy Lee have FINALLY made their dream of deploying an emergency slide of a passenger airplane – then sliding down it – come true.

The idea began waaaaay back when, because of Covid, planes were grounded around the world. Hamish and Andy thought it would be the perfect time to slide down a plane’s inflatable emergency slide because you could have all the fun sliding, without the life-threatening emergency!

In what became an Australian first after 18 months in the making, Rex Airlines and Melbourne Airport made Hamish, Andy and their 61 loyal listeners dream come true as Hamish & Andy’s ‘Emergency Slide Party’ went off without a hitch, and it all took place at Melbourne Jet Base off a Rex Boeing 737.

Hamish and Andy said “Our Emergency Slide Party is a lesson in ‘you don’t know if you don’t ask!’ We asked, and Rex said yes! It is amazing the lengths we will go to for a three second slide, but this way was a lot more fun than attempting it after an emergency landing!”
