Actually, Eb, commercial jets glide quite well, being designed sleek for speed and fuel economy. It's all the other stuff not working (controls, instruments, little things like that) that can make it a serious problem.

John, we always said helicopters have the glide ratio of a ring of car keys.

And Bobert, walking away only rates as a so-so landing. Being able to use the aircraft again makes it a good one.
