    On occasion this strategy has worked , although the odds are certainly not good.
    The airlines should offer a teen incentive program.

    Escapes from east Berlin were as daring but more numerous.

    A long time ago my neighbor across the street decided to escape his wife and 8 kids.

    She was an Alaskan airline stew with 9 years rank.

    He got out to Maui and decided to try wind gliding.

    His wings fell off and he plunged to earth , surviving with a broken spine.

    5 days and then that.

    I thought about that a lot.

    Lucky to be alive, stupid, but some huge balls to try.
    No wonder they found him walking around disoriented.

    I still associate that event with the Hendrix tune 'Castles Made Of Sand' .
