Re: Pah! Easy...

Actually, yes. Really easy. Computers have been landing aircraft for a long time. I was on a Lufthansa flight back in 2000 that landed by itself and it was smooth as silk. It's driving it after it's on the ground and bringing it to a stop in a crosswind that's the really hard part.

This is still decades away. There isn't an AI in the world that would be able to make the decisions that Scully did to put that airliner in the Hudson River thereby saving everyone on board. Water landings rarely go well as it is.
