    A Russian airliner landed in a corn field. There was no fatalities and all walked out to safety. An Amazing landing by the hero pilot!

    Pretty amazing. Would make Sully proud. Glad that everyone survived what could have been another "weekend" disaster, too many of those lately. I don't think this is what Kevin Costner's character in "Field of Dreams" thought of when he heard the voice say "If you build it they will come."

    Yes it seems that way. Interesting that China would never say anything about aviation problems. We only learn about their problems through social media. Just like the Russian crash, within minutes there was a u-tube on line.

    Unfortunately the Russian incident was a double bird strike !

    The layers of safety are gone now. What with rubber-stamping of certifications and inspectors signing off inspections from their desks the accident rate is increasing......

    The current big stink in safety departments around the globe is unstabilized approaches.
    The majority of recent accidents started with an unstable approach.
