David and Jack were on a small chartered airplane when the pilot suddenly had a heart attack.
“Don`t Panic,” cried David heroically. “I`ll land this baby!”
Seizing the controls he headed for the runway at LaGuardia Airport, and began wrestling the diving plane to the ground. Just as the wheels touched the ground, Jack screamed, “Red lights!! Right in front of you!”
Immediately David threw the engine in reverse and jammed on the brakes, bringing the plane to a violent stop just inches from the edge of the lights.
“Brother!” he puffed, wiping his brow. “That sure was a short runway!”
“Yeah,” agreed Jack, looking side to side, “but look how WIDE it is.”
