Wasn’t I married to you?

While taxiing at London Heathrow, British Airways (BA) 904 makes a wrong turn and comes nose to nose with a Lufthansa aircraft.

More experiences of a travel agent in Washington, DC, with politicians among his customers:

Photographers take pictures

A photographer for a magazine has an assignment to take pictures of a great forest fire. He has been advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly him over the fire.

The photographer arrives at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Indeed, a small Cessna airplane is waiting. He jumps in with his equipment and shouts: "Let's go!"

The tense man sitting in the pilot's seat swings the plane into the wind and soon they are in the air, though flying erratically.

"Fly over...
