Watching this on TV!! Incredible that the plane held together during the crash and how long it's staying afloat. Hopefully everyone gets out alive. Say a prayer for those people.

That water has got to be dangerously cold. Glad there are no fatalaties here and that it was a controlled landing.

Some passengers are saying that they think everyone got off. That would be great news.

A miracle if everyone gets off.

I have been on that flight from Charlotte to LGA many times. ALso have a lot of friends that are flight attendants. One friend just called and said his wife was not on it, but sometimes works that flight..........

I hope everyone indeed got off safely.....cold maybe, but alive. I'm watching now and it's getting dark fast.

What I want to know is....WHY were there still birds in NYC when it's so far into winter? I guess they couldn't afford to fly south this winter?

Had to make a little joke in relief that no one died or was seriously injured. Give the pilot and crew medals....and passengers a change of underwear.

Well BigDave, I think the birds are confused by the strange weather patterns. One day it is 40 degrees, the next day it is really cold. (and if you look on the national radar you will see it is clear and then wham in the space of 24 hours a big storm dumps snow on your area). The other thing I think is disruption of the sound space. You know that bees are dieing worldwide and they found out it is due to sound from cell phones when they are being used (it is something in the way the phones connect and the signals). Then there are disturbances to the electromagnetic field from equipment we use and also the military stuff.

I'm sure RBK will be along in a few minutes to blame the crash on Obama.

Birds are a tremendous problem here in the city for airplanes. All year around too.
There are flocks of Canada Geese (who go no where all year ) Brandt & Snow geese. They travel in flocks and are abundant. JFK is right next to Jamaica Bay Wil;dlife refuge and they are always trying to scatter the Gulls and assorted geese.

Or it could be as simple as the fact that Canadian geese spend their winters in that part of the country.
That makes sense. New York is south of Canada.

Amazing that the pilots were able to pull that off, losing both engines that close to the ground and adjusting for a perfect water landing. Next time I get on a plane, I want that guy!

Great job by the pilot. Glad to read that there were no serious injuries.
Geese...they are probably still in Canada also.
Cold snaps in Missouri, they stay and crap on the ice. They can handle to cold weather.
There is a unit known as the Kansas City flock. Gazillions of geese. I'm sure Bhawk can confirm it.

But, once again, this has nothing to do with a flock of geese crossing paths with a jet plane. In fact, birds colliding with planes isn't that unusual.




Seen several engines that were goosed or bird struck. Off to the junk yard they go.
Google up " bird strikes jet" in the photos.

If you could nominate a positive, feel-good story so far for 2009 I'd say this would be it.

Still 50 weeks to go, but Sully is the leader in the clubhouse.

I think this goes to show that what we like to call "heroic" is really just what most humans will do when given the chance. But my hat is off to all those ferry captains and others who immediately went to the scene to rescue people, and everyone else involved. Those folks were very fortunate to have such an experienced and skilled pilot in the cockpit. It's always good when a story has a happy ending. This will make a great movie!

3 cheers .
I'll be interested to see if it was a bird strike. I have't read the captain's accident report. 2 engines is kinda rare.

Absolutely. They leave little green lumps in every parking lot they frequent.
