Twilight zone: Remember the gremlin on the wing? A Delta passenger thought he saw fire on a wing so he tried to open the plane’s door to escape (what?) but there was no fire – the man later told cops he’d been “drunk for 50 days.” In case you’re wondering, airplane doors do not open in flight.
Bad joke: Anchorage’s airport was evacuated Sunday after man’s lame attempt at humor about bomb in bag. Fellow travelers were not amused as they huddled outside in freezing temperatures for hours.
