God was with these people. I can't even imagine how horrific it was !
I nearly froze shoveling my walk and cleaning my car this morning. Can you imagine standing on the airplane wing, wet - after a crash !!
God bless them !!

That pilot is a true hero. Robin Roberts was just on ABC News. Her apartment overlooks the Hudson River, and she rushed to her balcony when she saw the plane descending out of her window just in time to see it glide effortlessly into the water. She said it looked like a perfect runway landing. US Air owes this man (or woman) a raise!

My best friend works in the city, and she witnessed this all happen right out her office window...she saw the plane land, the people standing on the wings as the plane floated by her window! She's still at work now, and says that they're working on getting it out of the water...apparently it floated downtown? Yes, there was definitely a higher power at work here...

It just shows how people can come together and help one another.

Sometimes things like this need to happen to show people that we dont have to be nasty to eachother.

It was wonderful. just awesome.

This crash reminds me a of crash while I was in the Air Force back in Sept. 1995. I was stationed at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska, hadn't been on base for more than 6 months. One September morning an AWACS plane took off and crashed less than 1 or 2 minutes later, killing all 24 crew members on board, so sad. The cause, canadian geese got sucked into both engines and the pilot lost control of both engines and had to ditch the plane. Birds pose a huge flight risk to pilots and hopefully all airports have policies in place to curtail birds in the flying area. This brings back memories because I was on the dental team that had to go out and retrieve the bodies of those 24 brave men and helped identify them. This pilot that guided his plane into the Hudson is a smart and talented man, he's a true American Hero for serving his country and saving lives.
