Hero of the Day: Staff Sgt. Bartek Bachleda

It’s not everyday that you have somebody in the right place, at the right time. However Staff Sgt. Bachleda was right were he needed to be. While flying on a Boeing 747 from Chicago to Tokyo, he spotted a major fuel leak coming from the plane’s wing. Apprently the pilots knew of it, but were deciding what to do. Seriously? You have fuel pouring out of your wing! What do you think would be a good course of action. I guess having a second opinion was what they were waiting for. Needless to say, I would be more than happy to have the Staff Sgt. on my flight. Check the link for the full story and pictures of the leak in action.
