The crash landing did in fact happen at BUR-Burbank, California. It happeend in March 5th of 2000. It was flight number 1445 a Boeing 737-300. The pilot was landing to fast and overshot the runway and stopped right near a gas tank as you can see. Thank the lord it did not blow up. No one hurt or injured. Thats all I know, oh yeah the pilot was fired by Southwest Airlines.

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!

That was the runway overrun at BUR on March 5, 2000. Fortunately, no one was hurt. THAT being said,

Humorous captions:

"$1.59 for regular, $1.69 for mid, and $1.79 for premium. How much for Jet-A?"

Geraldine, driving the silver Taurus, ponders what to write on the insurance report under "type of vehicle hit." She doesn't think the Insurance company would like it if she put "Boeing 737."

"Hey, what are these cars doing on the runway?!"

(Pilot to the Chevron attendant) : "Fill 'er up, please!"

"What did that NOTAM say about a gas station on the runway?"

(Pilot to ground control) : "Which way to the terminal?"

"Ooh, management is going to be torqued.... They told us to only use Exxon Jet fuel!"

"It says 'Fast Pay' - do you think my credit card company would authorize a pay-at-the-pump purchase for 3000 gallons?"  Wink/being sarcastic

The only time an aircraft has too much fuel is when it is on fire.
