Well done indeed, although these planes are designed to fly on one engine and it's all part of a pilot's training? Scary all the same.

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Southwest is one of the biggest of America's budget airlines and has a good safety record. Other budget airlines around the world, including Easyjet, have based their busuness model on them.

 

All credit to the flight crew and cabin crew for a job well done in bringing the palne to the ground safely.
