I’m very happy that this time the cover of Business Traveller features a true hero AD 2011 - captain Tadeusz Wrona. His feat – an emergency belly landing with Boeing 767 at Warsaw Okęcie – will certainly go down in the history of the Polish aviation. The captain has all the features we can expect from the best pilot.

He’s brave, modest, consistent, responsible, has the nerves of steel – while at the same time being very open, cheerful and witty. I had the opportunity to find this out in person during our meetings and conversation, when I had an opportunity to congratulate him on this great manoeuvre.

Captain Wrona has been working for LOT for 20 years, is an avid glider, loves clouds and Boeing aircraft. So far, he has logged over 15,000 hours in the air. Without a doubt, he saved the lives of 231 people who flew on 1 November 1 from Newark, USA to Warsaw. I recommend reading this unique and sometimes a very personal interview, entitled „I’m not Icarus,” in which the captain answered the questions asked by our new editor-in-chief, Marzena Mróz. Taking the opportunity that we are meeting for the last time this year, I would like to extend my wishes to you, wishing you all the very best, good health, and happiness.  A bit of good luck will also come in handy…
