Landing a Plane



In stock

This image is part of Essential Knowledge, a series of prints teaching basic skills for success in challenging situations. I’ve made over fifty drawings while working in three countries and gathering content from personal experience, research, and imagination. The subjects range from surviving a grizzly attack to soothing a baby, from making coffee on the road to constructing a mobile border wall. I’m slowly making each drawing into a print.

You can see all the Essential Knowledge drawings here. 

I spent hours reading up on how to land a plane in an emergency. Afterwards, I felt like if up to me we would certainly crash. Most commenters on the articles were much more confident, explaining how they printed a copy for their wallet and one for the carry on bag. If ever in a terrorist attack on an airplane, they would have instructions ready and be ready to confidently and successfully land the plane.
