First Class or Coach

If you ever wondered what the difference is between First Class and Coach when you fly this picture explains it all!

Picture and Author unknown.

MSNBC has the released FAA tapes from the cockpit to air traffic control in New York's Laguardia tower for the U.S. Airways crash into the Hudson River in New York. You have to give the Captain of the U.S. Airways plane credit for being calm and cool under pressure. How the hell he pulled off a water landing with a jet that size is something I'm sure that every airline will be studying for decades and using his experience to train future pilots. Added to Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's record is that not one person died in this crash! Now that is a great pilot. Check this out from MSNBC on the conversation Sully had with the Tower...

Papamoka!!! I was all caught up on your blog, came on this morning, and you and your contributors have been busy!!!! I am a very slow reader due to my vision, and I cannot promise you I will spend hours on your blog every morning, but I sure enjoyed the trip this morning.

I have never flown on jets, never had the desire (or the will pwoer), but with Sully at the controls, I might just give it a try.

What a hero!
