Fly the friendly skies of Tegucigalpa

When I was dating the lovely woman who would become my wife, we used to grab a couple sandwiches, go to a little field just north of the National (now Reagan) Airport runways in Washington, D.C., and sit and watch the planes fly right over our heads. I can’t imagine that’s still possible now — any of my DC-area readers verify this? — because it damn sure looked like you could bounce a tennis ball off the underside of the plane.

And that’s nothing compared to this, a landing in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where a plane skidded off the runway last weekend. (After seeing the video, all I have to say is, “only one plane?”)

You see stuff like that, and you start to think that maybe donkeys aren’t such a bad transportation option after all.
