Feel-Good News: A passenger writes a thank-you note to pilot for a safe trip

The note was written in the wake of the Germanwings plane crash

(SPOT.ph) A simple, handwritten letter of gratitude ’inspired’ by the Germanwings Flight 9525 crash went viral this week. The letter was shared by Jai Dillon, who identified himself as an airline pilot based in Cheshire, on Twitter and has since been retweeted thousands of times:



The writer, Bethanie, identifies the letter as a hand extended in compassion. In light of the revalations about the co-pilot "deliberately" crashing Germanwings Flight 9525 in the French Alps, Bethanie acknowledged that the spotlight currently being shed on pilots can be blinding-especially for people who are fearing the worst.


As an act of random kindness, Bethanie thanked the people in the cockpit for her safe journey and added, "You’re making a massive diference and you’re the reason I can smile tonight."
