Bloody good effort by all concerned. Some people deserve a beer me thinks.

Don't get lost in a boat on the Med as Ryanair won't be able to look for you.

Well done, AC !!

A thread congratulating an AC crew and pax helping to find a lost yacht, turned into a Ryanair knocking thread in two posts.

Godwin's Law Mk II?
Could it be a lively subject for debate as to who has done more for the reputation of aviation; the figurehead recipient of Godwin's Law Mk I or the rather real leader of the other lot?

Dramatic rescue as commercial jets find stranded yachtsman

An Air NZ A320,an AMSA Dornier,a merchant ship and the Sydney Water Police were also involved.A long journey for the police.Well done.

Not a bad effort at all.

Wouldn't mind being in a 777 at 1800 metres tipping from side to side,
would certainly be better than the boredom on those long flights.

From BBC...

Pilots descended to 1,800m (5,905ft) altitude and used a passenger's binoculars to find the vessel.
Call me Mr Picky, but shouldn't that be 6000ft (1829mtrs) ?

Sometimes this obsession with metrication goes too far :*

Of course that would depend on whether the altimeter was calibrated in hectopascals, millibars or inches of mercury and was read from the LHS or the RHS or by the BBC correspondent peering down the aisle through the cockpit access hatch.

Had a look at the comments and had a wry laugh at this one:

Of course ... Sullenberger would have landed and picked the sailor up himself.
