Hey, Jack, those racks

don't go up there.

- What do you mean?

- They go in the parking lot.

The ones with blue plastic

go up there.

Ah, okay,

hey, sorry, I didn't realize.

Don't worry, you're fired.

By the way,

we're gonna miss you tonight.

Don't get sentimental on me now.

But it won't be the same.

Shut up.

- We did it.

- Roman, have they finished

the frame on the 6th floor yet?

Yes, and the framing

on the 7th floor

should be done

within the next three hours.

The problem with the

spokes in the basement?

Well, we solved

that problem, too.

And if you start the

enclosures tomorrow morning,

we should be one day

ahead of schedule.

So go home.


Well, your family's

arriving today, right?

Yeah, but they're not flying

in until later in the night.

So go on, go home.

Get everything ready

for them, it's a big day.

I have everything

ready for them.

I mean, I have the

whole house decked out.

Matt, you wouldn't believe it.

Welcome signs, everything.

Well, you're better off leaving

early in case there's traffic.

- Well, maybe you're right.

- Of course, I'm right!

Now go on, get out of here

and take tomorrow off.

Spend some time

with your daughter.

Christ, you're gonna

be a grandfather.

Go on.

Do not come tomorrow,

i know you.

This is

wsny and wsny hd Columbus.

Merry Christmas from 795!

Passenger Jones, please see the

ticketing agents at the gate.

Please do not

leave your luggage unattended,

luggage left unattended

may be removed...

Thank you very much.

Hey, man!

Excuse me, excuse me, sir.

You're a good dancer.

- Hi.

- Hello, sir.

Yeah, I'm waiting for a flight

and it says it's delayed,

but there's no eta.

- It's ax 1-12.

- Ax 1-12?

Yeah taking off from Kiev, with a

lay over in Frankfurt and New York.

- Okay?

- Ax 1-12?

That's right, yeah, I'm sure

i didn't write it down wrong.

Please come with me.

- Thank you.

- Take care, sir.

- Can you tell me your name?

- Roman, Roman melnyk.

- Can I see your ID, Mr. melnyk?

- Sure.

My wife and daughter

are arriving.

I know all their papers

are in order.

We have a lawyer so there

shouldn't be any problems.

I'm sure there wasn't.

Around here.

Could you just have

a seat in here, please?

Okay, thanks.

Can I get you any water,

anything to drink?

No, no, thank you. Thank you.

Did the plane arrive early?

I mean, are they here already?

I don't have all the information

so I don't want to

tell you anything

that might not be true.

Somebody will be right

in to speak with you.


What do you mean?

Where are they?

I need to see them!

Roman melnyk.

Where's my family?

Um... my name is Eve Sanders and

I'm one of the contact people

assigned by the

airport management office.

I need you to listen very

carefully to what I have to say.

The airplane that your wife

and daughter were traveling in

has had a very

unfortunate accident.

There's still no

official confirmation,

but we need to keep in mind

that with this type of accident

it's unlikely that

we'll find any survivors.

It is the worst news

that anyone will ever receive.

She was pregnant.

Olena went to pick her up,

to bring her back.

Are this address and

contact number correct?

And are there any other family

members we should inform?

No - nobody?

Not here or in your

country of origin?

The family support center has

been set up at a hotel nearby.

You'll have access to

medical and psychological

treatments and social services.

That's also where you'll be updated

on any news that comes in.

If you'd rather be alone,

you can do that there, too.
