To pilot an aircraft you need skill, intelligence, and other abilities that not everyone has. It’s an incredibly selective process on which a minor thing could become a disqualifying element. Top physical shape, attention to details, and steel-strong determination are just few of the things needed.
Sometimes, you also need luck – like in this video, where some lucky pilots avoid disaster, and more likely certain death, by escaping unscathed from a would-be disaster. Not everyone is so lucky, that much is clear. Some of these crashes are way too close. Just watch.
Do you think luck, more than ability, played a big part on escaping these disasters? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
