Quick Rant

How long is a football field? Do you know?

Apparently, the folks at NPR don't, because a reporter described the wingspan of the new Airbus A380 superjumbo jet as "nearly the length of a football field".

Say what?

The A380's wingspan is a few inches over 261 feet. That's about 73 percent of a football field's length ... hardly what I'd call "nearly".

ARGH!

All The Best,
