So for those of you that have frequented my McMansion, you know the OSU airport is right in my front yard. Many people ask me if I am afraid a plane will crash on my house. The truth is, even though I live so close to the airport, if they land on my house, then they missed by a long way. A really long way! And if they crash on my house while I am in it, my ticket is punched and it is time for my heavenly reward.
Now, that does not mean I do not get nervous from time to time...there was one time where a Lear jet came in for landing and he was WAY lower than he should have been. How do I know this? I have been in one and have landed there for one, but often see them come if for a landing on a daily basis. So last night, as I am laying there, I hear these popping noises, sounds like a ca backfiring. As I listened a little closer, it was very obvious this was a plane, backfiring its way to the runway. Obviously, everything was fine, but you can bet today I am paying a little closer attention to the overhead traffic! (as one flies overhead now)
