737 ***pit video - takeoff and landing practice Normally I do not film below 10000 feet, but this was a training video, used by our check airman to evaluate the procedures used for future 'bounces'.

Funny Video - Ashley Klinger Stuck in Pittsburgh International Airport Overnight My adventures in the Pittsburgh International Airport during the worst snow storm of the century. After arriving late for a flight at 7:40 PM to LGA I decided to stick around my gate until my flight at 5:40 and had a BLAST! I was on my way to New York City to attend an audition for the national tour of the wizard of oz (coming to pitt in April) when I missed my flight by 15 minutes due to the weather. I knew the only way to make it to the audition was if I spent the night and took the 5:40 AM flight the next morning. They told me to sleep in the kids area. I eventually made the US airways flight (although it was an hour late) and did well at the audition. I danced than had a callback to sing. :) Some of the place my video has been featured: Pittsburgh Tribune ABC News Jezebel BoingBoing Reddit boringpittsburgh Yahoo Buzz Today Show with kathy Lee and Hoda - Dumb as a Blog html Methodshop Pop city media Gadling ***burgh *** USA Today- under weird news- HAH
