    Occupant protection technology has also improved over older jets.

    Gosh, South Park has got it so right.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I agree. But he lives in a capitalist society, and wants to cash in. I hope he doesn't succeed.

    I think that anyone that was on that flight, crying 5k ain't enough for them... should be forced to say... watch unedited video of a few airliner crashes. Ya know the ones that have the bodies all burnt, shreaded and bloodied.

    And then slapped, repeatedly with a fish. A dead smelly fish.
    Amen to that.

    I'm sure they fail to think about that it is U.S. Airways that employed the pilot with the skills, calm, and clarity of mind to actually saftely land this thing in what some observes said was a miraculously smooth landing (Given the circumstances). So to "Punish" them for this you're going to exact hugely undo damage upon them to the point where they start questioning paying the money to hire good employees?

    From what I've also heard on the radio, this type of plane is one of the few that has a button on it that, when pushed, will instantly seal the plane and make it air type in case of water landings, thus keeping it from sinking near as quick.

    Unless it can be shown somehow that the engine issue in and of itself cause the issue, or that the geese wouldn't have took out BOTH engines if not for this problem, this should be a non-issue.

    Well, in truth, if he suffered a broken nose in a car accident he would get a payout of more than $5000.

    I don't think that kind of payout is appropriate in a car accident either, though.

    I think those sneaky Canadians trained those geese for that mission. But we'll have NORAD keep an eye out from now on.

    Even perfectly working engines would have failed after sucking geese into them. I HATE lawyers like this sleaze bag.
