Thornton asked the chopper pilot, “Sir, are we gonna make it in time? This is urgent.”
The pilot replied, “It depends on the air traffic sir, we are approaching La Guardia. If there are planes landing, we might be halted.”
To this, Thornton replied, “Is there a possibility we can steer away from that and take a different route?As long as it is less than 15 minutes, then we’re clear.”
The pilot nodded and slowly turned the chopper going east.He then said, “We will be at the destination within 10 minutes sir.”
Thornton, relieved, sat back and then pulled out a picture from his wallet. He was gonna make it to where he needed to be.
He is excited to become a father.
