“Why is it so hard to recognize a pilot?"/"They always travel in disguise.”

"Disguise” can sound like “de skies” (the skies). A pun is:

Q: Why is it so hard to recognize a pilot?
A: They always travel in disguise.

The joke was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on June 30, 2015, when the British spelling “recognise” was used.

“Why are airplanes so hard to see?"/"Because they’re in disguise” is a similar riddle.
