I was traveling home from a funeral yesterday.  Family in the other car was listening to CBC and caught this story.  They shared it with me tonight when we got together for Christmas Eve.

G'nite sir, happy Christmas...

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
