I couldn't help but chuckle at the irony.
In all seriousness, I'm glad Mr. Ford is still with us.

Actually he did make a huge mistake, one that every person who learns to fly is taught not to do. That big mistake is trying to do a 180 back to the field being so low. Your only real option is to continue forward hopefully fine a spot 30 degree left or right of your course.

In his case he asked for a return and then promptly fell out of the sky in his turn to then crash...he was extremely lucky.
