    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Heard on the radio this morning:

    And US Air is not even going to charge them an extra "miracles" fee.

    I am waiting until monday to see if Howard Stern repeats his DC prank
    when that plane crashed into the potomac in the 80's he talked about calling the Airline to see how much a one way ticket to the Potomac River would cost

    Tupolev 124 ditching in Neva River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    File:CCCP-45021.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Eyewitnesses saw the airplane descend upstream along the river, passing the Liteyny Bridge at an altitude of less than 300 feet. Immediately after the turn, the craft glided over the high steel structures of the Bolsheokhtinsky Bridge with approximately 100 feet (30 m) of clearance. Tu-124 flew just over the Alexander Nevsky Bridge - under construction at the time - barely missing it. The pilot managed to ditch the aircraft onto the river surface,[1] narrowly avoiding an 1898-built[3] steam tugboat at the last moment
