Traf­fic con­troller loses the plot

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - dclarke@irish­

Who’d have thought a Renny Har­lin film could be more in­ter­est­ing than help­ing to land an ac­tual jet plane? Well it seems that an air-traf­fic con­troller from Ohio has been sus­pended for watch­ing Har­lin’s Cleaner, an ill-re­mem­bered Sam Jack­son ti­tle from 2007, when he should have been talk­ing down the air­craft.

In an in­ci­dent that could have ap­peared in South Park, pi­lots heard snatches of di­a­logue from the film when the con­troller flicked on his mi­cro­phone. Jeez man, if you’re go­ing to en­dan­ger lives for a Har­lin flick at least make it The

Long Kiss Good­night – or, par­tic­u­larly ap­pro­pri­ate given its concern with

air­ports, the rol­lick­ing Die Hard 2.
