The real, actual, genuine arrival sign!
That’s true. But the plane was landed safely by two co-pilots.
Yikes! That raises so many questions!
Like, when the plane landed, what did the arrival sign look like?
I’m very glad you asked that, complete stranger. It gives me the opportunity to use our actual photograph of the sign, which otherwise nobody might ever see. It looked a lot like this.
Amazing! were you alone with that shot?
Um, something tells me others managed to get it, too.

Right: cameramen shoot the arrival boards.
