Plane Fakes Emergency Landing for Soccer Game

What some people will do for soccer.

Get this: According to an AP
, an Air Rum (air RUM?…perhaps that should have been a warning flag right there) charter jet with some 300
Gambian soccer fanatics aboard was so interested in watching a soccer tournamment, that the pilots faked an emergency
landing in Peru so the folks aboard could catch the game, telling the control tower in Lima (the game was in Piura),
that they were low on fuel. Hello?

A dumb, stupid, idiotic stunt, but at least the Gambia team won.
