Clearly, you won't be seeing this stuff in any ops/flight manuals any time soon (i.e., e-v-e-r). Clearly, lives were put at risk. Clearly, the outcome could've been tragically different. Clearly, these men knew the heart and soul and capabilities of both man and machine. Or were, at the very least, confident in those capabilities. Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to ask "why", but to let it be. All I know is this (and I HAVE experienced it myself, thank you): There are family and friends forever indebted to those who unselfishly took the mother of all risks, with dogged determination, and succeeded. Yes, without success...it would be a completely different story ...and fodder for much heated debate. That is all. TQN: Very well stated me dear and as I was thinking to meself, I says, with her journalistic background I was wondering when the book was going to come out. I hope in my lifetime. It would be amazing to read a book from a person who has never been involved in avaition, except as a passenger. I think the perspective would be great.
