Making Airplane Noises

from the Calgary Herald via Canada.com:
After polishing off the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Saturday, the [Calgary Flames] travelled to the airport. Once there, Flames coaches, trainers and staff -- not to mention The FAN 960 broadcast crew -- actually shoved [a 737] down the runway. Really.
With everyone aboard, the step-truck, flush against the plane, had conked out. Which put takeoff in limbo. "The captain went out, looked at the tarmac, realized that there was a little bit of slope going backwards," said Flames coach Jim Playfair after Sunday morning's workout. "He asked for help."
