Novelist Arthur Hailey, author of “Aipport”, “Hotel” and “The Moneychangers”, has passed away at the age of 84.

Hailey’s TV screenplay, “Flight Into Danger” formed the basis for the Zucker Brothers’ “Airplane!”, and for that alone, he deserves a very special spot in CSTB’s Hall Of Fame, if not being brought back to earth as a more attractive person.
