Lt. Colonel Kevin Sweeney is the only pilot to have landed a plane successfully with the 2 engines blown off the left wing during a night combat mission in Desert Storm. For this he was awarded the United States Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross, a medal awarded to fewer than 1% of pilots. Audiences who hear him speak have been comparing him to Captain Sullenberger as his military equivalent. Kevin will discuss his dramatic life or death flight during a mission in Desert Storm. He will discuss why the hard work you do before hand matters more than the work you do when the pressure is on.
