What a guy!
Hudson River hero is ex-Air Force fighter pilot - Yahoo! News
That government training sure did him good!
Yes it did! I sure wish all airline pilots were ex-Air Force, I'd feel a lot safer when flying! (Though I never fly anywhere....but just in case I ever do.)
probably 95% of airline pilots are ex-USAF or USN
See, I'm learning something again! I haven't been on a plane since 2002, when I went to San Antonio, Texas. That was the last time I had a kid free vacation. It was for 3 nights of eating and drinking,,,,and laying out by the pool in the daytime on top of the hotel.
I'm thankful that not only did he save everyone's life but he also avoided months of speculation that this was a terrorist attack by safely landing the plane.
He is a certified glider pilot instructor too. He did an excellent glide with what he had. It is truly amazing.
I am good at my job as well, am I a hero?
This is why, recently, they've recognized the many service personnel I see flying these days on my planes. I've seen several standing ovations recently on flights for guys/gals coming home or heading out.
I'm tall. Airline travel is very uncomfortable for me. I hate it.
