While my hat goes off to the captain, I'm glad to finally be seeing some recognition for the co-pilot. It definately takes more than 1 person to fly a plane in this type of situation. He was working just as hard with the same goal in mind....ditching with the least amount of injury and destruction.
I'm also proud of all the flight crews in this day and age of aviation. Jobs are dwindling due to the economy and this workforce is being just as hard hit. Being a pilot sure isnt what it used to be.
