That's what professionalism is all about, knowing the procedures, knowing the aircraft, and practicing cockpit resource management, as well as being creative. Congratulations to the flight crew and to Airbus Industrie.

I would have never thought a plane could remain in the air with that kind of damage.
Will they fix that? If cost wasnt a concern are the wings completely replaceable or is it junk?
