Without going into too much detail I was flying a small local commercial airline in South America. The landing gear colapsed when we were landing and the airplane skidded the length of the runway. Fortunately no deaths but there were some injuries to the passengers. Me I was fine but in shock.

Star Wars blew my mind, I had never seen anything like it. It had everything, duty, love, destiny, good vs bad, with … Read more
