Milking that one
Genuinely thought this was about x files
You landed a plane, mate. Get over it.

Yeah. Perhaps if you had done some research you'd have realised the feat this man accomplished is nothing short of a miracle. Gliding a passenger plane to a perfectly controlled landing on water. with both engines disabled, has never been accomplished before, and probably never will. No pilot trains for this situation in a simulator. Sully's experience as a veteran glider pilot coupled with his meticulous training as an Air Force pilot gave him the quick thinking and flying skills he needed to bring this potential disaster to a masterful conclusion. With any other pilot, those 155 souls on board plus numerous others on the ground will now be rotting 6 feet under.
There's even a Sully appreciation club run by the survivors of the disaster who fete this gentleman once a year for saving their lives.
For balance, folks should watch the numerous videos on YouTube where Captains actually ask their passengers to pray for even minor technical issues with their plane! Some even scream 'God is Great'! to anyone who can hear. Sully's passengers were very, very lucky they had him at the controls on that day.

Skillful? Undoubtedly! What bugs me with these incidents however is how the pilots are heralded as these brave hero's for saving everybody's lives. Surely they're all doing their best to save their own lives though..I don't know, just never sat well with me.

Rant over

Oh dear, this post has brought out the ignorant ingrates in force! Anyway, my reason for commenting is to note that the Kindle edition is available for 99p until the end of the month as a Kindle Monthly Deal
