This incident took place in Queensland, Australia.
The pilots, identified as 18-year-old Josh Matica and 22-year-old instructor Doug Field, stay remarkably calm and prepare for the landing. They were at 1100 feet when their propeller cut out and had about 2 minutes to prepare before reaching the ground.
Arline Captain Michael Greig had the following to say:
“Those are the sort of guys you want sitting next to you in the seat when something does go wrong because you know how they’re going to react – they’re going to be calm, methodical and do the job at hand at the time,”Now, I wonder how the student affirmative action pilots at South African Airways would've reacted??
Who would you rather?
