KCAL 9: JetBlue Plane Makes Emergency Landing

That pilot deserves a fucking medal.

(Edit: the article keeps changing, presumably as information becomes available. It seems worth noting that it said, until a few moments ago, that the plane dumped fuel over the Pacific; now it says the pilot was flying around to "burn off fuel," which might be true, but he was mostly circling because there was nowhere to crash land.)
