Plunging “Airplane?”

So a European passenger jet plunged 26,000 feet over about five minutes Tuesday before making an emergency landing in central France.

I have to ask, because apparently the Euro reporters covering it can’t get us any basic information, like: Was it like the panic scene in “Airplane?”¬†Were Hari Krishnas fighting in the aisles? Were people having last-minute sex? Were there any good last-minute confessions that embarassed everyone once the plane leveled out? Did anyone admit to loving someone of the opposite gender?

Just wondering. This is why I should be covering international affairs.

By the way, if you’re bored and want to have some fun watching real scenes of people panicking on planes, there’s lots of them on YouTube. I’d link to one or two, but I couldn’t decide which one was my favorite. Plus, after watching them, I had to take my medication and go lay down.
