McCain Takes Emergency Helicopter to Letterman

From the Huffington Post:

After an hour sitting here in his Straight Talk Air waiting to take off for Newark airport, McCain was informed that there was a two-hour air traffic delay.

Without action, he would miss his Letterman taping. And this was the mea culpa appearance, in which he was to make up for canceling an appearance on the show when he abruptly suspended his campaign last month.

So the pilot turned the plane around and headed back to the Philadelphia terminal, where McCain got off to board a helicopter -- the only way to get to Letterman in time.

Once he got on the show, he apologized:

John McCain appeared on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" Thursday night, telling the host "I screwed up" by canceling an earlier appearance on the show.

McCain offered his mea culpa shortly after sitting down onstage and being playfully asked by Letterman, "Can you stay?"
