A scene right out of -- was it "Airplane"?

So according to this article at, the person arrested on a flight from Washington, D.C. to Denver yesterday was *joking* about lighting his shoe!

Is it Airplane that contains the scene about a passenger in an airport calling out to a friend, "Hi, Jack!" and getting dragged away by security officials?

If flight marshalls can't tell the difference between somebody joking and somebody who's a threat, we're in trouble, it seems to me.

I'm catching up on your recent posts and learning all sorts of things I missed in the current socio-political brouhaha--thanks for posting, and I enjoyed all the ha-ha in the brou too!
