Another plane crash

I cannot believe no one was hurt or killed on this one. Kuddos to the pilots.

I have been watching the news coverage of the crash. It is amazing that no one was killed. They said the pilot saved everyones lives by the choices he made.

Pilots have to be smart. Everyone has to put their lives in their hands. It's good to know that they can save us if need be. Kudos to pilots

I was really impressed with the pilot's foresight and skill when I heard about this. People said the plane came in to land just as if it was going down a runway - a mistake or two and he could have taken out a big strip of Manhattan!

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Well not only the pilot, but the crew as well. I am watching the coverage on the today show this morning, and they said that if the crew would have opened the rear emergency exits first the plane would have sunk tail first.

Thank the Lord the crew, pilot and the passengers all had their wits about them, and all escaped alive.

It is trully amazing how everyone was saved.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Birds are dangerous. Especially since the Canadian goose population has Quadrupled! Do you guys ever go hunting up there?
