A Bit Humbling

You may have heard about the air crash that occurred yesterday in at Toncontin International Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras; an Airbus A320 skidded off the end of the runway in bad weather.  That Torcontin airport is in the middle of the city (which in turn is ringed by mountains) and has a far-too-short-for-comfort runway probably didn't help either.  Here's what a successful landing of a large jet there looks like:

 

It's a little odd realizing that the difficulty of that single one-minute long feat pretty much trumps any task I'll ever encounter in the legal profession.
