    Highway Encounter with a Boeing 747

    I was on I-79 Southbound doing about 81 mph when my glass is shattered and my car is nearly thrown off of the road. I look out of my now broken side window and see a 747 right next to me. The pilot was giving me the thumbs up, I would have reciprocated but I was busy trying to stop the bleeding in my right ear. I beeped three times and we were off. I instantly pulled about 2 car lengths on him but he started catching up and at about 300 mph he was 1.5 car lengths on me. He seemed surprised that a Cadillac could keep up with him.

    It couldn't be a 747 since you were heading south and they only land east-west. Again, you're embelishing your stories.

    I'll bet is was only a Bombadier out of Cleveland.

    You could probably take him with a 100 shot of the NOS

    May have to slightly expand your garage to fit that baby in there!
