Flight 1549 TED Talk

Hi All,

Here is an interesting 5 minute video that Geoff Thompson made me aware of via twitter. Well worth a watch and it’s sure to get you thinking about what is important to you in life. 5 minutes well spent!

All the best,


Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went through his mind as the doomed plane went down? At TED, he tells his story publicly for the first time.

I just finished watching it with my fiance.  Thanks Iain for the post.  Life is truely precious.  We take so many things for granted.  We get consumed by the day to day "consumables"...work, people at work...annoying incompetance at work, ignorant drivers, bullies, ego-maniacs, show offs, racists....the lists go on...and yet when we have a near death experience....we realize the important gems of life....our own life, and the life we have with our loved ones.

Precious vid man!
