Too late... there is LIVE coverage of the plane landing on CNN:
"There are 2 First Officers on board - is this normal?" "Are they trained to land?" "The "backup crew" is trained to take over when a medical emergency takes place" "The "backup crew" will try to make the landing as normal as possible and align the airplane with the runway..."
It amazes me how ignorant the media and our viewers are. In Europe they feature aviation almost daily on TV and in documentries which is probably why the profession is held to a much higher regard. They actually know that a crew involves more than just a Captain whereas FO's in America hold the same distinction as FA's at best!
