what a crock of horse excretment this suit is, for if the flight landed on a short- very short runway, then there was no danger ever here. The flight crew could have averted this treasure hunt by calling ground control for taxi back to the active runway, taking off, and landed at the intended airport, no harm , no foul.Give this crybaby nothing
