3-point landing at mouth of Amazon River

2:30 a.m.

Cleared for landing in Belém, at the mouth of the Amazon River.

Sleep knawing at your head like a three-day drunk.

KER-BLAM! BAM! KER-BAM!

Pilot just made a 3-point landing… first the right side, hard, point 1; then the left side, hard, point 2; finally the nose gear, teeth rattling, point 3. Not a “perfect” 3-pointer, but he at least got them all down!

Sleep? What sleep?
