This story still gets tears in my eyes. Such brave pilots. Even nearly three decades later the vast valor and honor of their actions despite their aircrafts issues is still astounding and affects, like ripples, throughout aviation history.
Arguably one of the best landings.
If you have a chance watch it. Such bravery!

Does no one else feel that awe? I won’t spoil it for you if you are just watching it…but come back after and at least sit with me

The fact the pilot cries that he couldn’t save everyone says a lot about the man he is. An amazing job that day.

Amazing !And thanks…I love and hate these type of stories! The one additional pilot who cried because he couldn’t save everyone…that’s the kind of pilot I would want on my flight! RIP Dennis
