The miracle man...

Meet captain Miracle, Chesley Sullenberger:



If The Economist was right in 2006, he is the first pilot to land a commercial airliner on water without causalities. This is definitely a miracle of human scientific achievement, technology, and skills.

(*)Today I did make a quick search in air crash databases, and could not find a non-fatal water landing.

wikipedia'nin dedigine bakilirsa suya inisler (Notwasserung) olmus: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notwasserung. Herkesin hayatta kaldigi inisler de var ama daha kücük capli. Bu kadar yolcunun sag olarak ciktigi baska bir Notwasserung ise yok.
