Nothing to do with being "the best" (or even "professionals" for that matter, aside from getting paid to sit there). It is just that we practise the scenario so many times that in the end it sort of becomes a "normal" situation. The risk perception is certainly much different than what the untrained eye sees, but to me the merit is not on flight crew or ATC, but on those anonymous people who years ago thought up the idea of pre-rehearsed procedures and constant training. They made look good even the most useless amongst us (I rank pretty highly on that score).

Disclaimer: I flew commercially for a few years until that felt a bit much like work. I never had a serious emergency for real, or if I did, I never realised.
