Scary flight running out of fuel

I am an ONA DC-8 captain and have a
story to tell that you might be able to
help me with!

The incident I am reverting to now is from
when I was a DC-9 co-pilot going from
Hill Airforce Base to
McChord Airforce Base
in Tacoma Washington some 35 years ago...
We ran into bad weather.
On our descent a TWA pilot in another
aircraft said on the radio:
Hey ONA! What is your minimum?
The captain went on: You fly the
plane and when I get the runway in sight I
will take over.
We didnīt see the runway until we hit it -
center line lights saved us. If the TWA
captain hadnīt contacted us in the air the
tower could have closed the airport. Upon
landing we had 7 min. of fuel left.

If I could get in touch with the TWA captain
I would want to thank him.
Greetings to all ONAers!
Don Crawford
