Polish Plane Landing

Polish Air Lines flight 113 was descending for a landing at an
airport they had never been to before. The pilot looked out the
windshield and suddenly exclaimed to the copilot, “Holy cow! Look
how short the runway is! I`ve never seen one that short!”

The copilot looked out the windshield. “Wow! you`re right! That`s
incredible! Are you sure we can make it?” “Well we better, were
almost out of fuel.”

So the captain got on the intercom and notified the passengers to
put their heads between their knees and prepare for an emergency
landing. Then he set the flaps to full down and slowed the plane to
just over stall speed. The big jumbo jet came screaming in, on the
ragged edge of control. The pilot`s hands were sweating, the copilot
was praying. They touched down and came screeching to a halt JUST
before the edge of the runway, the tires smoking.

“WHEW! That was CLOSE!” yelled the captain.”That runway was SHORT!”
“Yeah!” said the copilot,”and WIDE too!”
