👆 - I love saunas. Best finnish invention.

One pilot is obviously to blame.

Love this, Max.


There seem to be many B738 incidents, but still, the B738 has never had a fatal crash.

That sucks. They just got that plane and it’s already messed up.


It was back in passenger service within 36 hours of the incident. Often times a bird strike will be a short term issue, or is very rare that one will cripple a plane. If every bird strike were to be as serious as Cactus 1549, we would have planes going down left and right. That was just an extreme scenario. In the case of the 77W, it thankfully was not.


(Adding on to Ben’s statement above ^) I live 45 minutes away if that from Newark, so had this been a serious issue, I (being an avgeek) should’ve heard something on it, but if it wasn’t for this post, I wouldn’t have know anything happened.


This topic is quite interesting, Max! Never knew there were any kind of accidents this week…
