So, today John and I had to race my roommate's passport to her because she was flying home to Tiwan and forgot it...anyway, on the way leaving the airport an American Airlines DC9 flies over the street to land. John is driving, starts oogling the plane thinking (outloud) "i didn't know AA was still flying DC9's" and I look in front, and all the cars are stopped and we're still going full steam ahead. I yell, he hits the breaks, we come within a hair of rear ending the car in front of us. Now, my question to all you pilot types out there is, how many of you have almost wrecked a car/yourself because you were oogling a plane?? is this a regular occurance???
