Flight 358 was a near disaster. It was a near calamity. It was an incredible near miss. It was NOT a miracle.
Every paper in Canada screamed a headline about the miraculous nature of the end of Flight 358.

Where was the miracle?

Was it that the plane did not fall to a 1000 pieces? Nope - that was engineering.

Was it that the passengers got off quickly? Nope - that was a flight crew.

Was it that the fire did not engulf the plane more quickly? Nope - that was the fire crew at Pearson.

If Flight 358 had ended in disaster any one of the three above (and others) would have been called to task for their role in the disaster. So.... when it turns out well, give them some props, rather than chalking it up to God.
