Pretty damn good flying and some pretty good controllability from the aircraft if you ask me!  I bet the Ivan in the cockpit had to clean out his flightsuit after that close call, not to mention the sailors on the flight deck!

If you look closely you can see his hook struck the deck between the wires.  Had he actually caught a wire, he would have made a big mess for sure.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day, but geez.
