Passenger airliner helped with sailboat rescue

What a great story. I'm glad they were able to find him. Go Air Canada!

That's a flight the airline crew and passengers won't forget. And it was the trusty old mirror flashing the sunlight that helped them spot the boat.

Geez, that boat was his home. Makes you think. Glad to see he's doing okay though.

Re: Passenger airliner helped with sailboat rescue

Great story! Anyone able to tell what kind of boat it was or know anything about the storm? It looks like an IOR boat to me of some kind....
