    Flight 5390 British Airways

    This is a hair raising tale. Even more hair raising for the pilot of the craft. Happy ending though. And hey if you're not planning to fly anywhere anytime soon and feel bad about it. Here's the upside. You don't have to worry about emergency commercial plane fiascos and crashes or the most horrifying thing about flying...the food.

    I watched all the videos on the web with this kind of content ... I'm a masochist, as well as an aero-neurotic.

    The pilot that survived must have been a seriously tough s.o.b.

    Here's an example from 'The Flight Channel' I get sweaty palms watching these things...

    Ooooo....the Viking Cruise..I think there is a happy ending. So that's a relief! Watched yours NAP. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. But happy ending considering how bad it could have been.

    Horrible travel stories, cruises, planes etc....Looks interesting and terrifying.

    I never thought of it that way, but you have a point. Everybody wants to be a hero, just not that way!

    Ahhh now I understand why you deleted the other post.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
