    I’d love to know more about the “ditch switch” What is it and how does it work? …I’m unfamiliar with these since they don’t exist in the 172!

    Capt. “Sully” and crew did a superb job of making correct decisions and executing the A320 landing in the Hudson River, saving all 155 lives on the plane.

    Taking nothing away from them, we need to understand that the airline industry has at least 10,000 other pilots with crews that would have been equally successful if they were confronted with the same circumstances. RSM

    You may want to repost those photo’s as JPG files. BMP files are at least ten times as large as a good quality JPG.
