US Airways Plane Crashes Into Hudson River

Update: The FAA reports that all passengers are safe.

A flock of geese may have caused US Ariways flight 1594 to crash into the Hudson River this afternoon. The flight, and its 155 passengers were headed from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, NC. One witness described what she saw: “I just thought, ‘Why is it so low?' And, splash, it hit the water.”

The extent of injuries is not certain, but ferries and helicopters are helping rescue passengers and crew from the freezing waters.

This guy was also a former fighter pilot, sounds like he dealt with this situation with amazing calm.

...thank God. You wanna talk miracle? Seems fitting that a crash that ended in no deaths has floated this morning down the river near to where the trade centers went down over 7 years ago.

TMZ posted the pilot's resume, he flew Air Force One for 4 years and worked for NASA and a whole bunch of other stuff. He knows that the hell he's doing.

I'm glad everyone was ok. I was wondering, though, if there were any pets trapped in cargo. I hope not!

WTF! I go out for a few hours and a plane crash into the Hudson River and everyone survived? I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to hear that something so scary ended with no one's family getting the dreaded call of doom.

I'm sure the birds have already been punished for their crimes. Ew.

I'm glad to hear everyone is ok. Did they apprehend the bird that was the culpritt? ;)

I just read an article that interview a passenger. He said, the pilot said, "Brace for impact" and in they went. And yes, steph, the pilot did an amazing job given the circumstances.

No kidding steph, like he sat it down, huh? I was just thinking, and maybe I read it wrong, but did they say the pilot didn't tell them they were going to be landing in the water??? Wow we are low, then splash. I would be pissed!

I'm glad everyone is okay. What a crazy experience for the passengers. Nature never fails to amaze me. We have million dollar machines brought to their knees by birds. It's just incredible.

Crap... sorry for the double post.

I've been watching this in the conference room at work. I'm just glad they got everyone out and they are okay. I hate flying as it is and now I have to worry about terrorists and bird. Damn... just when you thought it was safe. :)
