This is what I was told when I was in school

Didn't the automation onboard made the ditching easier? I'm not talking about the 'ditch switch' but the alpha protection.

Its a war no?

What the locals should have done was to give the pilot a bottle of water and when hear a chopper/V22 run the hell away.
