60 Minutes - Saving Flight 1549

What does this have to do with investing? Absolutely nothing. But Capt. Sullenberger did an excellent job and deserves the praise he is receiving... He had to make very critical decisions in a very short time period while at the same time keeping the aircraft under control.

To me, (a 12,000 hour military/ airline pilot and accident investigator) the key to surviving was not trying to stretch the glide to an airfield, and keeping that controlled flight status all the way to touchdown (splashdown?). Way to go!
