The survival of everyone on board depends on just one thing: finding someone on board who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner.

Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different then riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

and for those of you in the know, "this is an entirely different type of aircraft all together".

“How long until you can land this plane?”

“I can’t say.”

“You can tell me, I’m a doctor.”

“I don’t know... two hours?”

“You... can’t tell me for two hours?”

Very glad this guy was there, but...
Was there a copilot? Why couldn't the copilot land the plane?

Either you 1) didn’t read or comprehend the article, or 2) don’t know that ‘first officer’ = ‘copilot.’

Chris Cashman 2
You are correct. I didn't know that first officer = copilot. Thanks for the clarification.

Yes you do. Airline crews need to have a sense of humor. It helps you cope. 99 percent of them know when to turn the humor on or off. This applies to other professions as well.

Maybe we're just blowing off steam. Given the volume of politically motivated postings that bait everyone,it's refreshing to have a nice story of success that we can have a few laughs with.
