Finnegan Flew On The Gimli Glider


Finnegan Flew On the Gimli Glider

By Clancy O’Lafferty

On July 23rd back in’83,

Air Canada flight number 143,

Finnegan sat in a window seat

Of that seven-six-seven and thought it a treat.

His seat was located behind the wing,

He could clearly hear that  jet engine sing.

But Murphy said, “Guess we’re gonna be late!”

When it quit at forty-one thousand feet.

When the second one quit singin’ just the same,

Murphy said, “Oh Dammit we’ll be up here all day!”
