The Slice

Ever build civilian airplane models?

I never did. I built military planes. But perhaps that was simply a failure of imagination.

After all, the movies offer plenty of entertaining scenarios for civilian aircraft.

What child would not have enjoyed playing “Flight attendant Jacqueline Bisset is pregnant with Dean Martin's baby and a plane is stuck in the snow on runway 3-1-Niner.”

Or, “Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?”
