Just came on the news....They said everyone is okay...
I've been watching that. It was an AirBUS.... great big plane and they think birds may have brought it down!
Now they're reporting that the pilot called in two bird strikes before it went down (it had just taken off.) I didn't know what a bird strike was so I Googled it and found this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYNpB-8_BSo
Wow, that is scary! Witnesses said it appeared the pilot put the plane down in the Hudson on purpose and it looked like he was landing it on a runway. Good job Mr. Pilot!
I have been watching also..... Glad everyone is ok !!!!
The pilot did a fantastic job... just imagine....and also they said passengers helped each other...paying it forward....i think they should all buy a lotto ticket...people that helped/emergency workers also...
If all the facts hold as is, that pilot deserves a BIG FAT raise!!!!
Quote:granted that the bird could have caused that engine to do this.. but it had one bursted of flame the end of the first view before it clearly showed the bird going into the engine so in that case it might have had other engine problems..
But I have herd that it was from a whole flock of birds..
My x was an air trafic controller and you can usually see bird flocks on the radar.. They should have warned that pilot..
Yup birdies will do that. It can be a robin size or a goose size...just depends.
Glad everyone is safe.
Glad everyone was OK too. You'd think they would put heavy gauge hardware cloth or something over the engines so birds in flight wouldn't cause a problem. Am I missing something?
