Airport 1970,

Minute 134: Here She Comes

February 02, 2017

Guest Host: John F. Dulemba, M.D., FACOG

Dr. John Dulemba has been practicing medicine in Denton, TX since 1986. Dr. Dulemba performs gynecological surgery with the Da Vinci Robot in North Texas. John is a former helicopter pilot in the United States military and is proud of his service to his country. He is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan, which is often apparent when he enters the operating room with his Steeler attire.


Flight Two’s passengers are exiting from the First Class Jetway at Gate 33.

Suddenly, Inez Guerrero moves a velvet rope set up for crowd control and rushes to the exiting passengers, crying.

“I’m so sorry!” says Inez. “He didn’t mean it! He didn’t mean it! I’m sorry!” Inez stumbles past the wounded passengers, and walks up to Tanya, who hugs her.

“Inez…” says Tanya.

Meanwhile, at the Tourist Jetway,  Dr. Compagno and the nun assisting him exit into the terminal. Compagno meets another man, who shakes his hand.

“I’m Dr. Nash, the airport physician,” says Nash.  Sarah Demerest appears behind both doctors,  on the other side of a waist-high fence.

“How do you do, I’m Dr. Compagno,” says Compagno. “It’s one of the stewardesses. She has splinters in the right eye. They may have penetrated.”

“There’s an ambulance waiting,” says Nash. “I’ll take her right to the hospital. I have an ophthalmic surgeon standing by. Any other complications?”

“Well,” says Compagno, “she has a fracture of the lower right arm. They’ll probably use a general for that. Before they decide on which type of anesthesia, better tell them that she’s pregnant.”  Sarah Demerest overhears this.

“Here she comes,” says Compagno to Nash.

Gwen rolls up the Jetway, strapped to a gurney. She’s bandaged and her head is immobilized. Vern is with her, holding her hand.

“It’s all right, Captain,” says Nash. “We’ll take care of her.”
