Two US pilots claim they were so deeply engrossed in a idle chit-chat with each other that they forgot to land the plane.
Must have been one of the world's most fascinating conversations of no consequence.
Neither pilot has owned up to the nature of the chat, which saw their plane land more than an hour later than its scheduled time, having taken the long and scenic route to the landing strip - about 500 extra miles were flown.
The NYTs has a beaut little interactive to save us having to imagine the course of the plane.
Fly Northwest, they'll get you somewhere pretty close to where you were hoping to be!
