US Airways plane crashes into Hudson River

Never a dull moment in the hood. Thank God it looks like everybody is getting out... Geeze... Those darn geese. However, when the news came that it was geese, I almost sensed a sense of disappointment in the news anchor's voice. I thought for a second that the MSNBC anchor was going to suggest that it might have been Al-Qaeda geese.

Whatever the case, the pilot of this here plane rocks for landing IN THE WATER and keeping control of the plane. Pretty amazing. If he hadn't kept a clear head, there would be hundreds of mourning families across the states tonight, including his. Praise God.

Great Seth, that's what I like about your posts...always a little alliteration. Or would that be considered rhyme? Anyway, Seth what were those geese doing in NYC this time of year? Aren't they supposed to be here in H-town. Must be global warming.

we were talking about this at the dinner table, and my son says, "that would be awesome!"

Glad everyone is okay.

The news anchor was a tad disappointed? Why do I have Don Henley singing "Dirty Laundry" running through my mind, now?

Seriously, awesome pilot.

Here's some more commentary on the Al-Qaeda geese. :-)

At about the two minute mark you can see US Air Flight 1549 skid into the Hudson. Then, you can see the passengers climb out onto the wings. This video is 10 minutes long. Actual video of Flight 1549 skidding into the Hudson.
