Holy ****. That's seemed unbelievable until the post-landing footage. I don't mean because the reenactment was animated, but because the scenario seemed too far-fetched to be real.

I kinda laughed at one part. No, don't let the captain go not because he is an esteemed colleague who I want to save unless it's a last resort. Don't let him go because his body might further damage the plane.

At the 4:30 mark, the caption says that the FO decides on Gatwick. But then he lands at Southampton.

I remember hearing about this incident before. It's the stuff of nightmares and amazing that the Captain survived. Imagine hanging out of the cockpit that way, unable to help in any way.

I guess they thought he was dead when they were contemplating letting him go. I hope.

That is an amazing scenario. I can't believe the Captain made it and was flying again just five months later.
