Holiday Travel, Y2K – Charles Leggett

Also newly unforgettable:
hearing from the pilot that we’d “try
landing once”: this after having circled

over banks of Portland fog for forty
minutes forty minutes after hearing
we would circle Portland fog for forty

minutes but most likely would be landing
in Spokane, eight nervous souls our Captain’s
captive audience that Christmas morning.
