I Knew There was A Reason I Didn't Love Flying...

See this link on what happened on Quantas earlier today. It is rare to see video footage of what really happens when there is a crisis in the air. Good that the passengers seemed relatively calm as well as the pilots, although it sounds like from one passenger comment (the man who took the video with his phone) that the pilots didn't say much except to stay seated!

One wonders what we would have seen if one of the 9/11 passengers had filmed as well?

The good news here, everyone landed safely. The more concerning news -how does a plane ened up with a good size hole in it for no apparent reason? The term "metal fatigue" comes to mind. Sometimes the things we read about come to fruition months later. How about stricter standards in airplane inspection? I'm willing to give up my peanuts and rubber chicken for the cause....
