Deadstick Landing

I can literally see a runway off to my right!

Ok, stand by for vector…
Turn left heading two-niner-zero, maintain flight level one-hundred

And free to use any runway, yeah?


How many souls on board?

Just one…me,
I repeat this is a Mayday!

Negative RS 1987, maintain holding pattern,
All runways are currently occupied

But I have a fuel leak and I’m almost out of fuel!!

Runways are closed for repairs,
There is another runway ten miles East of your position, stand by for vector

Fuck you I can no longer make that runway!
I’m going to have to ditch!!
