This headline and some of the comments remind me of a movie called "Airplane!" I think it was from the seventies.

Flight is fine, no injuries, just a simple runway overrun.

it's a big building where they treat people with illness and injury, but that's not important right now.

Sadly, the plane was one of their newer 737-800s. Guess that MD-80 replacement program got set back by exactly one plane.

Dollars to donuts a certain in-flight movie starring Russell Crowe distracted one of the pilots.

Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that's a dumb question... skip that.

FTFA: "An American Airlines plane carrying 152 people skidded off the runway and broke in two Tuesday night after landing in Kingston, Jamaica, injuring at least 40 people, according to local news reports."

You apparently missed the part where the plane broke in two...does not seem like a simple runway overrun.

Adjective Bird Whiskey: Jamaican airport? Not that many gates.


Like when I was flying into the town where I grew up earlier today. Our airport is so small, that for a few years after 9/11 the security caused a bit of a problem because once you went past the security check point, there was no bathroom. So if you had to pee, you had to wait for the plane or leave the secured area and go through x-ray again.

Anyway, the flight attendant made some announcement like "If you planeside checked baggage, it'll be on the jetway for you to retrieve. If you are doing this, please stand to the side of the jetway so others can pass." Our airport doesn't have a jetway. You have to walk across the tarmac.

I'm in that same kind of plane a lot. Not thrilled with the whole "broke in half" thing. Going to be looking for the seam on the next flight and adjusting my seating preferences.

Joey: No, you're Kareem. I've seen you on ESPN highlight reels. I think you were the greatest, but my dad says you never worked hard enough on defense. He said lots of times, you didn't even run down-court. And that you didn't really try, except during playoffs.

Murdock: The hell I didn't! Listen, kid, I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I was out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

Am I the only one who noticed the article contradicts itself? Did the damn plane break in two or didn't it?
