Miracle on Hudson!


Oh well, I just could not stay away!
Hero crash pilot Chesley Sullenberger' skills or someone really up there; 155 people on-board the US Airways Flight 1549 Airbus A320 were really extremely lucky to have come through that incident with only very few injuries! Image is curtsy Janis Krums who was on the ferry going from Manhattan to New Jersey which was first to come to rescue the passengers of the ill-fated air plane.
Hip hip hurray for the hero pilot Mr Sullenberger, 57, of Danville, California, is a former Air Force fighter pilot who has flown for US Airways for 29 years. He also runs a safety consulting firm. One thing is for sure, next time you see Air India crew with grey in their hair, be happy, they have years of experience under the wings! Any day I will prefer that instead of chirpy youngsters!

Welcome back. Happy to see you back. :-)

Hope you have solved your problem and everything is pretty well at your end.

There is a saying by Oscar Wilde, "Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes."

Yes, we gain experience with our mistakes and that's why elder people have more expereinces.
