The airplane just floated by my office
This is crazy. The airplane just floated by my office window. I took some bad iPhone photos. Wow...
Yep, no fun in the winter.
Passengers that went into the water are being treated for hypothermia
Holy crap. It took me a while to figure out what you had going on there. CNN took care of the rest.
That driving range looks exactly like it does in GTA IV. That is a lot of attention to detail
I don't see the airplane...maybe its me?
Yeah pretty good, right?
The second shot if you zoom in the wing is sticking out of the water. iPhone camera....
An absolute miracle. Looks like no loss of life.
So if airplanes float, do iMacs? And does Obama's "Beast"?
Looks like a hell of a good job by the captain. Ditching is not something you get a chance to practice.
Wow, simply amazing that there was no loss of life.
Funny, friend IM'd me from Denver to tell me what was going on 8 blocks away... Had no idea.
Yup, "a modern miracle"...
Really puts that little talk we all ignore about seatbelts and floatation devices into perspective.
Agreed. The captain and crew did one heck of a job!
Wow, I'm glad everyone made it out alright. Great job by the pilot.
However, let's all observe a moment of silence as we cherish the memory of the Macbooks and MBP's that may have been left on board.
Now, for the full scale inspection on the geese, were they sent by terrorists?
Apple's Stocks Tank Today!
Right now I am watching my local news and a minute ago came a story about Apple's stocks tanking today: just checking they lost over 5%. This is probably because of Steve Jobs letter announcing his sickleave yesterday.
On another note: a plane crashed into the Hudson River after a bird or a flock of birds flew into the engine (The birds fail). Everyone survived and there are no signs of terrorism. The pilot is a hero!
I am watching Governor Patterson giving his speech right now. "Miracle on the Hudson" is how he referred to this because of the fact everyone survived. Jeez, they didn't go to commercial just now- instead they went to the station. I knew about this and i announced it on Facebook three hours ago- they are talking about it just now. A lady actually saw the crash and was hysterical on TV. At my local airport something similar happened a little while ago: a plane was talking off at 4PM and all of the tires blew out and the engines died. Noone was injured.
I heard from the Phil Defranco show when I got home from school and my dad thought it was bull until the 6pm news went to the plane.
I've always wondered why jet engines don't have some kind of screen or fencing type barrier in front of them that wouldn't restrict the air intake but would prevent objects such as birds to not be sucked in.
Because anything you put there would restrict intake.
lol did you see that the water was up to the windows? crazy!
No, I live upstate. You saw it person????
Good job Pilots and Crew.
I will now stop making jokes to myself about those safety instructions that one finds in the airline seat pouch.
The flight tracker tells the story...
I can't even begin to imagine that..Amazing job by the captain,crew and rescuers..
