Planes Circle Isle After Controller Overslept

Two airplanes due to land on the Greek island of Lesbos had to circle above the Aegean sea for more than half an hour because an air traffic controller overslept, police said Monday.

An Olympic Airlines aircraft, arriving from the Greek capital Athens, and a Slovakian Airlines plane made several failed attempts to contact control tower personnel.

"They were calling the tower to get directions, but no one would answer," a police official, who declined to be named, told Reuters. "The woman later said she overslept."

The airport's secondary control service assisted the pilots to land after they had circled for 40 minutes. Police said the controller, who was not named, would be suspended for a few days.

Jesus in the Drywall

Jesus in the drywall may sound like the title of a country song but two subcontractors in Gulf Shores say that's what seems to have appeared inside a house they are working on.

Inside what will be the kitchen of a new house in Gulf Shores, Omar Craddock was just getting to work.

"We were in here doing some work. I happened to be looking around and I seen something going on that I normally wouldn't see."

An image, in the drywall. "We were working and my brother-in-law Omar said 'Hey come look at this'," says John Gissendanner. "When I first seen it," says Omar, "the first thing to come to my mind was Jesus."

Whatever it is or looks like, one thing is certain according to Gissendanner, "For drywall finishing this was a pretty exciting day."
