This man deserves a medal as big as a frying pan

That's Peter Burkill, the pilot of Boeing 777 that crash landed in Heathrow. He saved lots of lives today.

Update: let's prepare another big medal, please - for this man:

Senior first officer John Coward was at the controls approaching Heathrow's south runway when the Boeing 777 appears to have lost power, forcing the emergency landing.
Coward he is definitely not!
