It's good they had a happy ending.

I don't mean to take away from any of it, but Airbus was bragging recently that their planes haven't experienced any problems. I guess they forgot to knock on wood.

It was amazing to watch. The guy made it look like a normal landing.

Very brilliant work, if ever I am in that situation I can only pray that my pilots are that skilled.

CNN (Anderson Cooper) interviewed a passenger on that plane and asked how the landing was. Aside from the "BRACE" being yelled, she said that it was actually more smooth than the "typical" landings; no bounce on touchdown. Awesome pilot for sure! Perfect flaring, zero stall, heck he even drove down the center of the runway!

Yes. thank God. I'm a frequent JetBlue flyer. They might just have the newest fleet of aircraft in the skies. Obviously the pilot was top notch.

I was reading an interview with the pilot on CNN. The Mayor was thanking the pilot for his ability to handle the craft. The pilot was joking and apologized that he was sorry that he was 6in off the white strip in the center of the runway.

That was an awesome job by the Pilot and crew!
