I still think they just did it as SOP and the reporter had something to add to an otherwise not much newsworthy story. Regardless of what seat you are sitting in, if he got it down, it wouldn't be a deal for an 11 yr FO to get it to the gate if he had too.
Wouldn't work in a 737, the only tiller is on the CAPT's side under the #2 window.
I love havin' a good tech guy around! keep us honest JM24
LOL! Welcome, I will try. :P
The runway is good enough for me! Don't need no stinking gate for me to be happy.
if something like that were to happen when i fly the next time i would like a cool headed and level headed first officer at the controls
