So I was browsing youtube and stumbled across a video of a teen that had managed to land (in a Boeing flight simulator) a 737-800 using only the knowledge he had attained through materials available to consumers. I was honestly surprised that, going about in the way that he did, he was able to pull it off. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen the movies where some Joe Schmoe is able to successfully land the plane and I have also watched other videos of random people that succeed in a simulator. It’s just an interesting method that I haven’t seen before.
I would certainly never wish this situation upon anyone, but if you found yourself having to land a plane with no training, do you think you could do it? Also what are your thoughts on the teen?
