|The ramp in front of airline operations at the Big Town airport is
a busy place. Airplanes gather there to talk and wait until they
are assigned a trip.
|Jack the Jumbo and another airliner named Superslim were busy talking
when a new plane taxied up. His name was Wally, Wally the Widebody.
Wally looked a little different than the other jets at the airport.
Wally was very, very wide.
|Jack teased Wally about being so wide. "I don't think I could
get my wings around you, Wally," he said.
"Wally, if you were thin like me, you'd be normal," teased Superslim.
|Wally just laughed. He told them, "I am normal and someday you
will see what I'm designed to do." Jack and Superslim did not understand
what Wally was talking about.
|One day, the jets were on the ramp waiting for their trip assignments.
The man from airport operations walked out and said, "Wally, I've got a
group of more than 400 people that need to go somewhere right now.
You're the only one who can fly that many people at one time."
