Chinese Workers Pushed an Airplane Off the Runway

Come on, we've all joked about having to go out and push a broken airplane, but the Chinese actually did it: when a faulty plane was stuck in a Zhengzhou airport, they sent 30 people to push it off the runway!

It took them nearly two hours to push the CRJ7 plane, with 69 passengers and seven-strong crew on board, less than half a mile to a side lane.

"Thank God, it was only a 20 tonne medium-sized airplane. If it had been a big plane, it would have knocked us out," said one man, who said he had never experience anything like it in ten years working at the airport.

You really believe they would leave 70 people inside the plane for 2 hours while they slowly pushed the plane?

You voted for G.W.B., right? twice, right?

My wife and I once had to push start a diesel bus, along with about 20 other people, on a Green Tortoise trip... crazy stuff, but...

I see no reason fit adults shouldn't be able to push an airplane around... surely these Chinese took care of the situation quicker and cheaper than would have happened at any US airport.
