Two Landings

On Wednesday 9/21 there were two extraordinary landings.

CNN: Jet makes emergency landing -- the amazing JetBlue emergency landing. In a post-modern twist, passengers were able to watch their ordeal live on CNN.

AP: Pilots allegedly faked emergency so soccer fans could watch game -- A charter pilot had a delima: his 289 passengers, Gambian soccer fanatics, were going to miss their game in Piura, Peru. So instead of land in Lima as scheduled, he faked low fuel and did an emergency landing in Piura. FWIW, Gambria won the match 3-1.
