As a commercial pilot of over 40 years... I BOW to these guys. Holy crap Batman! These pilots did the near impossible... I've tried turning off all hydraulics airborne, in a 757 a simulator. I had NO ONE shooting at me and no structural damage, worsening fuel imbalance, or abnormal flight characteristics. It was extremely difficult to land, especially controlling the pitch with only speed changes. I was only successful once out of 3 attempts. I can't tell you what respect I have for these pilots. Amazing piece of airmanship!!!

Yes! Exactly! I was thinking the same thing. Almost duplicate situation to United Airlines Flight 232. Captain Al Haynes of that United Flight called Captain Sullenberger after the Hudson River crash landing.

Your comment refers to the July, 1989, crash of United Airlines flight 232 (a DC-10), which lost hydraulics after suffering uncontained failure of the aircraft's tail-mounted engine. The jet was flown on the two remaining wing-mounted engines to a crash landing in Sioux City, Iowa where 111 of the 296 aboard died. The crew of that flight are often held in high regard for the 185 that survived.

Haha! I was thinking more along the lines of cables. But in this scenario... counter-measures would have helped.

Truly amazing!
To think, they tried to escape a crashed plan only to run into a mine field.

I hope they are at home with there families relaxing. I'm sure the experience took a few hours off of there life span.

The C130 I was riding on in to Baghdad after taking leave was shot at with an RPG. Talk about a wild ride and man were we close to the ground. Great pilots!!
Was a little grumpy after that when rolling out on patrol.
