Not to keep making Airplane references here, but Shirley you must be joking about this one

Ahhh, yes. There’s nothing more delightful then getting off a plane like I did this morning and finding there has been yet another airline tragedy.

This time a 60-year-old pilot pilot died mid-flight, with the plane landing safely in Newark. I’m happy I was not on board to be asked to land the plane, because, well, some things that happened in the war and I developed a drinking problem.

Listen, I don’t mean to be beating to death the Airplane references here, but wasn’t that the exact plot of Airplane? I mean, add the plane landing in New Jersey and that’s a sequel you could sell to Hollywood for millions.

This whole week has been a mess in the airline industry between planes disintigrating in air and children getting placed on planes going to who-knows-where.

But seriously… do you think the scene on the Continental flight where the pilot died was any different from this one?

Surely more airline tragedies can’t befall us?

Actually, I’m sure they can. And don’t call me Shirley.
