    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    All the ones I've known are good or they're gone. This crew is probably going to be around awhile.

    Good job but very ordinary. Any decent pilot should be able to do the same thing--that is the reason they train.

    Glad it came out well--to bad Chris Matthews was not under the plane when it landed :) .

    Still - a mega sigh of relief.

    May be easy on paper but actually doing it successfully. Well - good news all round.

    Reminds me of the days of my youth...

    I wasnt a pilot but made many landings and take offs on various carriers back in the day. I thought being shot from a catapault the first time was a rush. It wasnt dick high compared to landing the first time....

    It never ever got to be "routine". Any arrest that you walked away from was a good one...
