    Plane crashes in New York River

    BBC NEWS | Americas | Plane crashes in New York River

    Did everyone survive? Any news on this, the article doesnt mention anything..

    It is not known how the plane came to land in the river, but the FAA said it might have been due to a bird strike.
    Now, thats very comforting the next time I fly...

    Here's another article from CNN:

    Airplane in Hudson River after failed takeoff, FAA says - CNN.com

    There aren't many details there either unfortunately.

    Hopefully everyone is okay.

    You'd think a 100 ton piece of flying metal would be able to take on a 3 pound bird huh?

    Everybody thankfully survived.


    I wonder how this will hurt USAirways' reputation - with all the recent penny pinching and all.

    This re-enforces my hate for geese.

    You'd think so, but traveling at those speeds I bet anything bigger than a pound would cause serious problems.

    I don't know if much could be done about it, unless we started flying C130's.
