Patrick & Feargus were on board a small chartered airplane when the pilot suddenly had a heart attack and they needed to make an emergency landing.
“Don’t Panic”, Patrick called out, heroically. “I’ll land this baby!”
So, Patrick unfastened his seat belt, got up and moved to the co-pilot chair.
He strapped himself in, then seizing the controls he headed for the runway at Dublin Airport and began wrestling the diving plane to the ground.
Just as the wheels touched the ground, Feargus screamed out, “Look out Patrick, RED LIGHTS!! RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!”
Immediately Patrick threw the engines into reverse and as they screamed and the plane lurched from side to side as it tried to slow down, he jammed on the brakes, bringing the plane to a violent stop, just inches from the lights at the end of the runway.
“Phew!!” he puffed, wiping his brow. “That sure was a short runway!”
“It sure was”, Feargus agreed, looking side to side, “but look how WIDE it is”.
