MySQL min() and max()

dolan2go asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have tried about 100 iterations of a query and not arrived at the solution.

The query should pick ONE row with: (in order) the MIN (runTime) and then MAX (Num)

One unsucessful attempt.
SELECT Num, empNum, lastName, travelerName, runTime, fltNum, depCity, timeZone
FROM Check_in
WHERE runTime =
(SELECT MIN( runTime )
FROM Check_in
WHERE runTime BETWEEN '2011-05-16 09:19:00'
AND '2011-05-16 09:21:00')
