Passengers at Charlotte Douglas International Airport might be greeted with a shocking sight Sunday morning: A plane crash, complete with fire trucks, paramedics, wounded survivors and dead bodies on the runway. Fortunately, it will all be a simulation. The airport is holding its federally mandated safety drill and mock crash, required by the Federal Aviation Administration every three years. Sunday’s drill will involve about 100 actors, done up in realistic makeup to simulate injuries ranging from minor to fatal.
