Very quiet here today, suprised no mention of the ace piece of airmanship, by that pilot who managed to dead stick his AC and pax to a safe landing in the Azore's, after double engine failier, not a mention anywhere on Prune?.
Heres me bragging to my neibour that I would have the whole story double quick from prune.
Been on cable news all day. :rolleyes:

A really good outcome when you consider what could have been, remember that hijacked airliner a few years ago going into the sea. I would suspect that this outcome was the meeting of luck and bloody good airmanship.. On the news here however, the reporter questioned the smartness of using twin engined airliners on trans ocean flights.
