Today at about 4pm, an Air France plane over-shot the runway at Pearson International in Mississauga. It ended up in that ravine at the west side of the airport and burst into flames. Now, I’ve seen my fair share of cartoons, so I’d fully expect a plane to burst into flames like that, but real life is a whole other story. I can totally see Homer flying into a tree and bursting into flames. Anyway, traffic on the 401 was shutdown because everyone wanted to see where the fruitbat was going on. Officials from the Greater Toronto Airport Authority where heard to say “lightning was causing technical problems with the airport’s lightning-detection system”. Does that seem odd to anyone else? In my mind, a lightning-detection system should be lightning resistant. Your lightning detection system should be one point twenty one jiggawatts approved. Everyone on the flight got out ok, except for 14 injuries. Now the question on my mind, where do we bury the survivors?
