Two Words: Freakin' Awesome

The pilot of this flight deserves a medal. Not only did this guy land the plane with busted landing gear but actually was smart enough to run out the fuel (no fule release option) so if something had happened, the explosion would be lessened.

The worst part is, the passengers watched their own impending fate on live tv:

"Passengers said they had watched their own drama unfolding on the news on in-flight televisions until just before the landing. One described it as surreal to watch. Another said she would have been calmer without it. " - Victoria Times

I don't have much more to say other than next time I fly, I'm going to try and book with Jet Blue. Their equipment might not always work but their pilots are definitely sober!
