4. Any landing you can sprint away from after soiling your pants is a good one, right?

I'm just glad no one applauded. I hate that. Scully landing on the Hudson is the only time you should applaud.

5. +1

I'm a nervous flyer. For me, flying is better than taking a stimulant to clean-out my digestive system. I even wondered if they had cameras in the bathroom the last time I flew SouthWest. So, for people with my affliction I can tell you with a great deal of authority that by the time the landing took place there was little chance of soiling our undergarments.

7. I'm with you. There would be nothing in my system before the flight.

I wonder how many people on that flight will be more nervous next time or less nervous, because of what they've already experienced. I know with myself on ships, having narrowly avoided disaster, I don't get too worried anymore.

8. It really depends how often they fly.

More opportunities to overcome your fear the more often you do it.

10. Per the article linked in the tweet, the starboard main landing gear collapsed...

...that why you see the wingtip impact the ground.

<snip>

The FAA issued a statement saying, "At approximately 7:45 am this morning, an Embraer 145 regional jet arriving from Greensboro, NC, landed at Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Runway 10 Left and slid off the runway while attempting to exit at Taxiway P4. The aircraft's right main landing gear collapsed. Passengers deplaned via air stairs and were placed on a bus to the terminal. No injuries were reported. The FAA will investigate."

</snip>


My question is, given the damage to the aircraft (gear collapse, and wing contact with the ground), why did they wait for airstairs to be driven out to the aircraft, instead of using emergency slides? The fuel tanks could've been ruptured.

13. I connect O'Hare tomorrow morning.

I'm thinking that's probably not happening as the snow continues to fall.
