Unfortunately here cpt. Wrona had to use his skills...
While I'm not questioning that the crew did a decent job, IMHO a gears up landing on a hard runway requires no exceptional skills other than being able to land an airplane in the first place. Once touching down, cutting fuel, electric power and slowing to a speed where rudder is no longer effective, the crew become front seat passengers with zero further control over events...
