Default Re: "We'll Be In The Hudson"

This guy's an old school pilot. No matter what's going on you never show emotion over the radio.

Story from Tom Wolfe's The Right Stuff.

Over the skies of Korea a pilot was in trouble and knew it. He got on the radio and began screaming "There's a MIG on my tail! There's a MIG on my tail!" Another voice broke in over the radio and calmly said, "Shut up and die like an aviator."
