  • It's the most terrifying mid-air emergency in Australian aviation history - flight QF72's autopilot tried to kill all 315 people on board. They were only saved by the quick thinking of Captain Kevin Sullivan - so why has Qantas refused to give him and the crew the recognition they deserve?

    Please make sure you sign Fuzzy’s petition so the crew get the recognition they deserve. https://www.change.org/p/qantas-group-forgotten-heroes-of-qantas-flight-qf72

    Both Sullys are incredible pilots. Can’t believe Fuzzy ended up with nothing as I understand. And how people say “look what you did to my child! “ is totally uncalled for. Although most pax don’t understand the workings of a plane, what they are made of, and all the automation on today’s jets, I still think an apology to the captain and crew is needed. Anger rears it’s ugly head to those that don’t understand, but not every pax is going to understand the workings of a jet of today. Personally myself, I don’t fly in them for the reason of all the automation. I would take a Beaver any day over a jet. Low and slow. (One with floats)

    I love happy endings. Kudos to the captain and crew. Why on earth the plane 'reacted' that way?

    That girl with ptsd needs to live for her child. She needs to get out of her isolation and move somewhere new. If she or a friend is reading this, please consider taking a cruise ship to another place in the world and change your life. Go from protecting yourself to living a new life in a new country. That’s you best hope to fix the ptsd issue.

    I had to stop halfway into the documentary and appreciate how innovative this production is. I love this genre and thought I’d seen all styles but kudos to this one. They truly got the fear and terror through to the viewer. While still being respectful and honest. I hope I see more from them.

    The pilot and crew of this plane are absolute heroes and should be honored as such.

    Many heroes in that film, bravery of different kinds and Fuzzy, what a great guy, actually flies again to meet his hero, that is bravery indeed.
