TACA 110

A TACA 737 was flying to the US. The flight encountered severe weather and experienced a double flame out. The crew was unable to restart either engine and were forced to make an emergency landing. Unable to reach any airport they determined that they would either make a water landing or land on a 700ft levee. They chose the levee. The Coast guard from LA thought they would be conducting a water rescue and much to their surprise they saw the plane parked on the levee with minimal damage and no fatalities.

According to the video none of this should have happened. the weather radar should have detected the sever weather but it did not, the severe rain/hail should not have caused the flame outs but it did and the pilots should not have been able to land the way they did but they did. Corrections have been made to the radar and engine designs but the pilots are the ones who saved the day. I guess over 30,000 hours of flight time really did pay off that day. Pretty freaking amazing.

Sounds to me like Sullenberger is in good company.
