US Airways Flight 1549 Pilot Makes Heroic & Miraculous Landing in Hudson River
My hats off to the pilots, flight crew, and passengers of flight 1549 whose plane may have hit a flock of birds at take-off from LaGuardia Airport, causing the failure of both engines and forcing the pilot(s) to make a "safe" water ditching.
New York rescue teams seemed to have performed a brilliant response to the doomed jetliner. US Airways Flight 1549 Ditched in Hudson River
This heroic water "landing," by Capt. C.B. "Sully" Sullenberger, sounds like something out of a John Nance novel!
Early reports are that everyone
made it off the plane safely!
