Notes
1. KISS explains this type of clause as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
2. Alternatively, the "was" clause can be considered the main clause, and the "asked" clause can be explained as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
3. This clause functions as an appositive to "proverb." See KISS Level 5.4 - Appositives.
4. "Plane" is the subject of the verbal (infinitive) "to land." The infinitive phrase functions as the direct object of "do expect."
