Thanks also Lou for your additional comments concerning the Gimli Glider.  But apart from being fortunate enough for the crew to have some gliding and side-slipping experience the aircraft was  also fortunate to be "just within Gliding Distance" from an airport when the fuel ran out.

I hear about the weather, in Vancouver were not even getting rain for Christmas! I put a link in the Pilots Lounge section you might enjoy with some comical ATC stories.
