Does it seem odd that The New York Times spent 670 words on this story? Quotes:
"the official described the event as 'routine.'"
"That problem occurs dozens of times a day with airliners at civilian airports around the country, according to aviation experts."
"'the aircraft were never in any danger.'"
"the aerial choreography in this case was not unusual"
"It is reported that she drank some water during the flight--water that, it should be known, had nothing wrong with it. Just perfectly normal water."
Okay, I made the last one up.
