NWA 's Flight 188 and Page 188 in Sully's Book!

I know, I know. I wasn't going to say another word about NWA Flight 188. But today, at Barnes & Noble, when I picked up Cap't. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's new book Highest Duty, it fell open to page . . . 188.
The following sentence jumped out at me:
"Whether you're flying by hand or using technology to help, you're ultimately flying the airplane with your mind by developing and maintaining an accurate real-time mental model of your reality -- the airplane, the environment, and the situation."
The irony is inescapable. I just couldn't let this pass without comment.
