Ok, how many people do you know who have survived TWO plane crashes? Jack is either damn lucky or "can't take the hint", depending on your point of view.

Since he was piloting during both crashes, he at least had some "input" into the results both times.

By all accounts, he is a seasoned pilot, and therefore, it was likely conditions he trained for, improving his survival. Good news in any case.

When I was station at Hickam Air Force base in the early sixties I remember this sergeant who had been in four plane crashes. He always use to say that he knew he would never survive a fifth.

I thought maybe he was flying an experimental, since Oshkosh is the place they hold those experimental air shows... but that was a high dollar jet. Very strange. Glad he walked out. I think he needs to hire a real pilot.
