Default Plane crashes into the Hudson River

Airing on all the news networks right now. Amazingly, the plane is still in one piece!

Not far from where I live.

Looks like everyone MAY be OK. Passenger interviews are early but some think everyone is OK.

Great news.

So since everyone walked away the thread title is alittle misleading. Should it not be "crash lands"

Looks like a bird to the engine may have brought it down.

Unreal if a little bird could bring down an Airbus.

In case of a water landing, your seats can be used as flotation devices.

I have a joke for you.

What's the last thing to go through a bird's mind before it hits the engine of an Airbus A320?

(Nobody died, or I wouldn't go there.)

Okay, not to monopolize this thread, but...

watching this on CNN, it is crazy that they were able to land it without anyone dying. That pilot either got really lucky, or he has some mad skills.

Yep.

If it turns out that anyone, God forbid, has died or is seriously injured, I'm deleting my posts in this thread (although now you quoted me, you bastard, so my insensitivity is locked).

But, the answer to the joke is "his ass."

Does this qualify as an act of Canadian terrorism?

What a feel good story. I bet that pilot picked on Rambo as a child.

I have a couple of good friends who are US Airways flight attendants, based in Charlotte where the flight was going. It's really great to hear everyone apparently survived.

I bet the pilot could break off 2K in our system.

The flight was actually heading back towards LaGuardia due to the birds/geese.

I am actually heading down to Charlotte the first week in Feb but taking Jetblue out of JFK not LaGuardia.

Turns out Chuck Norris was on board and took over the controls when he spotted the suicide geese out the window.
He landed the plane purposely in the Geese' natural habitat killing the geese offspring/terrorists and nesting area/hideout in one fell swoop.
