the 747 has all the gliding properties of a brick.
Yes a 767, close enough.
...n July 23, 1983, Flight 143 was cruising at 12000 metres (41000 ft) over Red Lake, Ontario. The aircraft’s cockpit warning system sounded, indicating a fuel pressure problem on the aircraft’s left side.
In 1985 the pilots were awarded the first ever Fédération Aéronautique Internationale Diploma for Outstanding Airmanship. Several attempts by other crews who were given the same circumstances in a simulator at Vancouver resulted in crashes. Quintal was promoted to captain in 1989. Pearson remained with Air Canada for ten years and then moved to flying for Asiana Airlines; he retired in 1995. First Officer Quintal died at age 68 on September 24, 2015, in Saint-Donat, Quebec.
