True Heroes walk among us...

and fly our planes.

I have been slightly obsessed with this story of the plane that landed perfectly in the Hudson last month. It was somewhat upsetting that there were some who questioned what happened. The Pilot was the right person in the right place at the right time. He knew his s*** and saved lives.

Live your life to the fullest. It matters.

There are always asshats questioning things. The thing that bugs me about this crash though is it sets people up to think water landings are like that, or that pilots are like that. This was an extremely random set of circumstances. Don't get me wrong, if I could have that guy flying every plane I was on I would, but I also understand that almost no pilots are that smart and that almost all aircraft ditchings kill everyone aboard.

damn skippy.
Which is why that plane was amazingly special and that pilot was amazingly skilled.

Right place right time. Sometimes its all about random factors coming together to create a perfect event (Katrina may be an excellent example of this, except in a very negative way.).

That reminds me actually of a documentary I saw a couple days ago about Phillippe Petite, the twin towers wirewalker. If you're a fan of the Hudson river landing I think you'd enjoy "Man On Wire." I have a rip handy if you want it.
