As someone who used to have to be on an airplane a lot, and still travels by air fairly frequently, I do my best not to read about airline mishaps. Airline accidents are things I’d rather not know or think about — it’s not like I can leap up and grab the steering wheel if there is a problem. Of course, it’s impossible to avoid all coverage of these events.
So, it’s always nice to hear about the heroics of people like Captain Sullenberger and other pilots. Just yesterday there was another example of some pilots doing their job so well in safely landing a jet when one of the landing gear did not deploy.
No one was hurt. You can read more about it here http://is.gd/62kMJ.
Nice job, pilots. Thanks.
