Reports say that all passengers got off alive.

Yesterday the media was covering the fact that US Airlines haven't had a fatal crash in 2 years. This pilot kept that streak going.

This pilot definitely gets a pat on the back. He could have very easily stalled it on accident and killed everybody on board.

Just watching it on news now

Sounds like a fantastic bit of piloting to bring it down as slowly as possible and avoiding the plane disintegrating

With flying becoming more technologically advanced and autopilot the norm in all aircraft, it's these types of situations for which they get paid.

Technically I don't think everyone walked away-- I hear one person had broken legs. Still an incredible pilot though.

It's nice to hear some good news once in awhile!
