First things first... HAPPY FRIDAY!
I just have to bring up the recent... I don't know if you would call it a "crash" or "water landing" of US Airways flight 1549. It is a miracle that all of the passengers and crew are alive and safe today after the incident that took place yesterday. The plan allegedly lost all engine power after colliding with a flock of geese of all things! Apparently the pilot and co-pilot had planned to make an emergency landing in New Jersey but decided to turn around and head back to the runway at Laguardia (where they had just taken off). The pilots realized they weren't going to make it back to Laguardia and needed to think fast. Long story short they "landed" the plane on the Hudson River in New York!
Here are some pictures
I am scared to death of flying and crashing is the reason why. Thank GOD everyone on that plane was ok! It could have been a disaster/tragedy! Good job "Sully" and Skiles!
