Near Total Disaster- Flying in Typhoon

Parlour assessment: Fake news, but entertaining none-the-less. Outstanding flying- I am sure the QRH was consulted and procedures were followed.

Re: Landing on the wrong strip of parallel pavement.

no. Please throw me a bone and briefly discuss this. We have instances of two folks- emphasis on two- mistaking a taxiway for a runway. -Happened at Atlanta -Happened at San Francisco On the occasion I get to see runways out of a side window, I can see how it's not uber-obvious which ones are for l...

Re: Landing on the wrong strip of parallel pavement.

Landing on the wrong strip of parallel pavement.

Were the pull-ups relentless?
Thank you for making this a great Friday.

I would assume that lesser, carefully-measured pull ups would have kept the plane in-flight.

And, after reading, it is a rather interesting story. The procedure of an 'immediate' accounting for 'all' passengers apparently failed as did some sort of underwater drone video search.

Re: B 737-800 in the water in Micronesia

First impression is that sturdy aluminum alloys are less buoyant than cheap, carbon-fiber composites.

To land short probably requires some cowboy improvisation and deviation from procedures (unless there was a downburst).
