Hudson hero

If you thought there was enough pressure on Captain Sully while he reacted to a total loss of power, landed on a river, stayed on the plane until he was certain everyone else was off, and had the landing caught on tape, consider this-

Modern flight simulators can re-create the entire flight, including loss of engine power, to see if he did the right thing. H/t to Lex.

Thankfully us infantryman are not the focus of such high technology, lest we be second guessed for everything we do. Unless, of course, you are a squad of Marines who get second guessed/slandered by a Congressman who should know better.
