Press calls it a miracle, airline geeks say no biggie
Reading media coverage of the emergency landing of a JetBlue Airbus 320, you would think a major tradegy had been averted. Well, according to the airplane enthusiasts at Airliners.net this is something that pilots train for and should be able to handle such emergencies. This has happened before, and yet the media says it was a miracle as if we have no control over our destinies. Doesn't the pilot and flight crew get any credit for their ability to stay calm in a stressful situation?
I just want to tell the flight crew, congradulations for a job well done!
Oh, on the Washington Post's article, I got a pop up ad for an online travel agency. Truly cringe worthy. Automated ads need tweaking.
