    Thumbs up 155 lucky UA passengers

    Guess they will all go buy a Lotto ticket or two today

    Thankfully, a happy ending story - so far........................

    Depends what you call successful.

    A couple of guys ditched a Cessna off the coast of Kaikoura several years back. They got out of the aircraft alright - but died because they had no lifejackets as they had not planned to fly over water...

    <edit>Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961 - ditched off a beach on the Comoro Islands - 50 people survived. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM7zMW8WVYU
