Plane crash on the Hudson river

It's a miracle. Bird strikes down the plane and nobody is killed. The pilot has time to walk the cabin and make sure everyone is out safely. :up:

Just freakin' amazing. Good thing that pilot had a bazillion hours experience under his belt.

Even at that.... Luck scores the same as skill. I think he used his allotment of both.

He used to fly Phantoms in the Air Force. He is one cool cucumber. Shortly after his "ordeal", he was found at the bar sipping drinks in his still impeccable uniform! :D :)

He actually has studied and trained for this crash and is President of a company that sells airline style safety to other industries. Just the guy you want when in a engine less plane over NY City. :)

Always nice to hear a good story. I know many of the news channels were very upsaet that a bird took the plane down and it wasn't someone named Ahmed

I'm not authorized to read that page. This is what I got.

Even though I've never met Greg, I was thinking that it could be him. But then, I remembered reading that he flies for Jet Blue.

Kudos to that pilot. :clap:

Over your head! :)

It's at least 32 feet to maintain shipping, but parts are up to 200 feet. The Statue Of Liberty has to hold her breath when she walks home at the end of the day.
