NORFOLK Naval Air Station Virginia -- One of the military's largest transports got stuck at the end of a runway atop the I-564 overpass for more than 16 hours. It was unable to turn around at the West end of Chambers Field at the Norfolk Naval Station. The incident forced the closing of the field to all but helicopter traffic and made for a dramatic sight for hundreds of motorists passing beneath it during morning rush hour.

The aircraft's nose was so far over the end of the ramp, the crew was unable to see the runway where it was supposed to turn around so the pilot simply had to leave it at the end of the runway. The aircraft had to wait for a specially made tow bar trucked in from Dover,Del. When the tow bar arrived, it was used to hook the C-5 to a tractor that then turned the aircraft around. The plane was not damaged.

The female copilot was overheard saying

to the male pilot as they exited the plane...

"I told you we should have stopped

and asked for directions?"

I heard that she said, "I told you to concentrate on the runway, not on the flight attendant reaching for the coffee cups".
Either way, he needs to listen and obey!:-D
