Winging it in Vegas

Alejandro Carlson, 41 of Las Vegas must have really loved flying because he waited for an Alaska airline’s 737 to pull away for the gate and then jumped the airport fence, ran on to the taxiway and climbed on the left wing. The pilot saw the hitchhiker and froze the plane and called police. Alejandro cavorted on the wing for the entertainment of the crew, passengers and police for 45 minutes and eventually fell off the wing and was arrested. It is assumed that Alejandro has some mental complications. The bigger question is how can a civilian so easily get over the fence and onto the tarmac to stop a plane? This guy was nuts, but what if had the intention and means to attack the plane?


Flying is a joke

Adulthood is like looking both ways before crossing the street
Then getting hit by an airplane.

Just before takeoff one day, a flight attendant approached Kanye West and asked that he fasten his seat belt. “Superman don’t need no seat belt,” Kanye growled. “Well, Superman,” the stewardess replied, “don’t need no airplane!”

My grandma was not allowed to bring her knitting needles on the airplane.
They were worried she might knit an Afghan.

A DC-10 had an exceedingly long roll out after landing with his approach speed just a little too high.
San Jose Tower: “American 751 heavy, turn right at the end, if able. If not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off of Highway 101 and make a right at the light to return to the airport.”
