Paul Nutting captured a Southwest jet getting winched up at Logan after it got stuck on the tarmac at Logan this morning.
Did the crane operator get a box of cigars to get the plane unstuck ? Or does it only work with something other than a Boeing 707 ?
Was TransGlobal Airlines Flight 2 needing a runway because of an inflight emergency ?
That's all the hint I am offering.
"Lincoln Airport" refers to the fictional airport in the 1970 movie Airport. Some of the external footage was shot in Minneapolis-St Paul Airport.
"Airport" the movie was the big granddaddy and the best of all the "disaster" movies that followed in the 1970s. It's one of my faves. Every classic mid century actor in the book puts in an appearance.
Airport is a bestselling novel by British-Canadian writer Arthur Hailey. Published by Doubleday in 1968, the story concerns a large metropolitan airport and its operations during a severe winter storm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airport_(novel) The Airport in the book is named "Lincoln" a stand in for O'Hare (ORD)
It was probably before your time
But we all know the best 1970s disaster flick is The Poseidon Adventure.
