Friday 56: Week 29 The Survivor's Club by Ben Sherwood









Rules:
* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions
on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*
Post a link along with your post back to this blog and to Storytime with Tonya and Friends at http://storytimewithtonya.blogspot.com/
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The chances were one in a billion. Without hydraulics, Haynes had no way to control the planes flight surfaces.

From the moment of explosion, Haynes tells me that there was no time for fear or panic. He and his crew quickly realized the only way to guide the plane was by adjusting the thrust of the two remaining engines. To turn, he accelerated the power on one wing and then the other, literally skidding across the sky.
