    IT DID NOT CRASH-LAND

    It performed a SUCCESSFUL emergency power-off ditch, following a dual engine failure during climb.

    You don’t say so! Everybody knows that.

    C’mon, don’t be a nitpicker …

    Well, words have power and oversensationalizing this causes more damage than good.

    Although “traditional” media strives for the drama with some actual information sprinkled in, I think the blogosphere can do better.

    It happened. They did good. Very good. Everyone lives. Let’s learn from this. I hope that if I ever have to ditch I’ll do it as well. Can we move on now?
