AIR TRANSAT PILOT ROBERT PICHE LEAVES PRESSER. 
Captain Robert Piche, 49, looks back as he leaves his press conference at
Mirabel International Airport on August 28, 2001. Hailed as a hero for
landing Airbus 330-200 without engine power, the pilot of Air Transat Flight
236 said on Tuesday he only did his job, albeit in a dramatic fashion.
"Being at 33,000 feet above the Atlantic at night without engine power is
not a dream situation for a pilot," Piche told a news conference. "I don't
think I'm an hero, I could have done without this." Air Transat Flight 236,
carrying 291 passengers and 13 crew, ran into fuel and engine troubles on
August 24, 2001 while headed to Lisbon from Toronto.
