I live about 40 km away from Peggy's, and what I am beginning to realize
is that the captain may have been the ultimate hero in this crash. It is
possible that Zimmerman aborted crash-landing on land, over crash-landing
on water... thus saving many more lives.

He was professional and careful right to the end in steering the
out-of-control; zero visibility airliner into the ocean.

My humble regards to the captain of the ship!
