It was the end of a long-haul passenger flight from Newark, N.J., and the LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 767 was about to land in Warsaw. But the pilots had a problem: The plane's hydraulic system had failed a half-hour into the flight.
The Polish pilot hailed as a hero for his smooth emergency landing of a Boeing 767 airliner remained modest Wednesday in his first public appearance, saying he felt "huge relief" once his passengers evacuated the plane, but he wondered whether he could have done better.
"I have flown this plane 500 times, and this is the first time the undercarriage did not open," Mr. Wrona said.
"I am absolutely sure that each of us would have done it the same way and that the result would have been the same," Mr. Wrona said.
