This is really a pretty exhilarating video clip from KTVU (the commercial at the beginning notwithstanding). Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, freed by Iran after two years of captivity, looking almost like the Beatles landing in America, come sprinting off the plane in Oman and right into the arms of family and friends. Bauer runs straight to embrace Sarah Shourd, the men’s former co-captive and his fiancee.

Watch it here.
