An airplane buff took off in a biplane from a makeshift runway Wednesday to reenact the first transcontinental flight. Jim Lloyd, a 38-year-old metallurgist, took off just 75 years after Calbraith P. Rodgers launched his flight on Sept. 17, 1911. Rodgers took off from a Brooklyn, N.Y., race track, but Lloyd could not use the same runway because a housing complex is there now. Aside from the takeoff spot, Lloyd plans to make the same 76 stops Rodgers made.

Dick Ebersol, the president of NBC Sports, had a wild idea Friday. What if NBC were to use the Fox pregame show cast via satellite from Dallas during halftime of the AFC championship game in Pittsburgh?
