Captain certainly was extremely calm but then her years in the cockpit of an F18 doing stuff like night carrier landings would mean that while this was not exactly a walk in the park it probably wasnt the most frightning experience of her career.

The ATC tapes certainly show a very calm professional teamwork between ground and flight deck with a lot of quick thinking by ATC to give her a non standard visual approach into Philidelphia.

Humans 2 Automated FD and ATC Nil on this one, yes?
