Doc, that was a pretty fascinating experience no doubt. I could almost see the stunned disbelief on everyone's facte when the captain told the story. If an airplane back in 1980 could do this, I wonder what the more modern aircraft of today with more sophisticated avionics can achieve with auto-pilot, besides handling more challenging weather conditions (like flying in a blizzard)? Greater stability of the aircraft perhaps?
