Airlines lend the police real planes for these exercises.
And then sometimes the police forget to check that there's no live ammo left on the ramp.
I was at DAL
for some training and when walking around one of our old 732's, which the Dallas PD
use for hostage training, and we found at least two live "paint bullets" (not paint balls, but live shells with a paint tip) just laying around the ramp. Good thing that it was over on our "practice" ramp...
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
