    How quickly do you think this would go down hill if they found out the pilot voted for George W Bush...twice.

    No evidence of the voting habits of the pilot, just speculating.
    Thanks to SarasotaRepub for your help! :D

    Helluva piece of flying though. I don't care if the guy voted for Joe Stalin, I would like to shake his hand and buy him a beer.

    Amazing story. Praises to the pilot for manuvering so "gracefully" as witnesses stated under such stress. And hats off to the passengers and crew for being able to stay calm enough to get everyone out. Of course the same to all rescue workers.

    Definitely an amazing story.

    But in keeping with the topic of DU, will they see this as the first miracle of the Obama administration (no one died), or the latest failure of the Bush administration (plane crash)?

    I read that he only had about a 20-yard margin of error on either side. Excellent work.
