Yesterday, a JetBlue airliner had to make an emergency landing in Los Angeles due to a malfunctioning nose wheel. Apparently the pilot could detect that the nose wheel was stuck sideways and would not face forward upon landing. The video of the landing is astounding but even more astounding was the fact that the pilot was able to keep the plane going straight down the runway -- never veering to one side or the other. Now that's a pilot! The passengers were scared but fortunately unhurt.
