They love wording every aviation incident, no matter how big or small as having 'escaped disaster'. Even if its something monor or fairly routine as a bird strike.

The media loves to blow things quite out of proportion.

When you're in a 60 tonnes beast, going at 550 mph, with 16 tonnes of fuel, and with 200 passengers - then any problem you walk away from is a disaster averted. A bird strike or an engine failure is not a "minor problem". I hate to sound like some preacher, but a minor problem can lead to a major problem. Remember that boys and girls! :)

I agree with Adnan, up there in the cockpit...there is nothing routine ,small or insignificant.Give you an example , something as meaningless as a masking tape caused Aero Peru 767 to Crash.Something as routine as puching in the NDB into FMS, and extending spoilers to be the diffrence between a safe flight and crash of American 965.A 15inch metal strip, got sucked into the inlets of concorde and rest is history...nothing is routine or common or small in flying or aviation.
