OMG, he missed 45 days of school in the 1st grade!!!!! USAFA must have some pretty low standards!

I guess there is an advantage to the FO not being recognized much be the media.....he can at least live his life in peace without having his personal records plastered all of the internet and TV!

I wonder how many reporters are camped out like paparazzi outside Sully's home?

Ridiculous... just f'ing ridiculous!

I'm sure they've already dug through his garbage too.

I think the media is just doing what it's suppoed to do, make shxt up so that the hour passes by quicker. If you've watched Spiderman, that's how they do it, right? Make him a hero, and then try to find dirt on him...

Hey, at least now his wife will have more to talk about. She posed for pictures today than gave interviews and then posed again.

And how many airline pilots trust this Network as 'the source for news, fair and balanced'...

You watch, by the time its all said and done these a-holes are going to crucify him. They'll find a violation of sterile cockpit, or a flight attendant joke, or God forbid, a joke about Michelle Obama, and their carreer will be over.

I remember the DL 72 that forgot to set the flaps for takeoff, and one of them had made a comment about how Dan Quayle's wife face reminded him of a horse. And they based the whole investigation around that statement and how it violated sterile cockpit.

Most likely when the media finds out they didn't put the landing lights on, I'm sure they'll come up with ideas like if he turned them on he may have been able to find the runway, or if the gear were down they could have floated to land.

'Sully' and Skiles were smart to remove personal info from the FAA database...

How the hell did the Captain's name get out in the first place?

Do you always open your mouth without thinking?

Well he brought up a good point.
This type of thing fits the stereotype of what many perceive of Fox News.
They are the most sensationalistic of the news medias.

I sure hope I don't have anything like this happen.

Ok, I'll come clean now: I was an average student in grade school. An ok student in middle school. A lousy student in High School. I crashed my dad's cars repeatedly (although I didn't drink--that's a good thing, I think...)

I graduated with a .223 GPA in Journalism in college and passed out on many a soriority lawn. (I had started drinking...)

I nailed every FA I could without regard to their appearance. (More evidence that I started drinking...)

I was in the Chief Pilot's office more than he was.

There, my reputation can only get better. ;)

P.S.--This is a sick society we have created isn't it?

An airline pilot that qualifies for Mensa? Clearly there's some mistake...

Me, I think this was just bad karma.

Ever since US Air started charging two bucks for a friggin glass of water, passengers have been plotting for a way to get some water for free.

Voila! Plenty to go around!!
