Next time, think about flying first class

This will make you think about flying first class the next time you fly. I have no idea whether it's real or a photoshop, but it's cute. And thank God we can laugh about it now.

Thanks for the laughs! I've never been afraid of flying. Most of us know one has a greater chance of drowning in a bathtub or being struck by a car crossing the street than dying in a plane crash. There are risks in life but they are not so great they keep me from enjoying it. And of course, I'm well aware when I go to sleep and when I wake up, my life is literally in G-d's hands. Life is short and He is the one who gives us the gift of people to be with, places to see and events to treasure!

The pilot truly is a hero. Someone could have just as easily been killed in such an accident...

How many more people do you think you can fit onto that fore floatation slide/raft?

Remember, the aft exit doors are mostly underwater. So there's a disproportinate number of people who headed for the wing exits - justifiably so.

But the caption is cute.

The pilot is a hero, not only for making a perfect water landing (which will not help if the winds/waves are going to crack up the fuselage anyway) but more so for a perfect evacuation by the entire crew and the pilot going up and down the plane cabin twice to make sure no one was left behind before being the last one to exit the craft.

While the captions are clearly photo-shopped, according to the news reports the raft on one side of the wing flipped over upon inflation and floated away. That's why they were stuck on the wing.

What's even more amazing about the pilot is not only that he managed to land the plane cleanly but also did so right near the Circle Line ferry pier so that the ferries were right there for rescuing within minutes.
