Hard to believe how dumb some reporters are:

"Temperatures at the time of the crash in the city were just about 20 degrees, with the water temperature likely much colder"

Sheesh!

OMG!

HEY, BT, DUCK!!!!
You better thank your luck stars, bt, you weren't on the roof at the time. The glare off your head would have blinded the pilot and he would crashed at that driving range (on land)! L O L ! ! !

they said it was a flock of seagulls that caused the accident.

what the heck does an 80's band with bad hair have to do with it?

Seriously though, when I turned the TV channel and saw NBC, with Brian Williams & ticker tape saying a plane crashed in the Hudson River, I clenched my shirt at the neck with the right hand, left hand over my mouth, face contorted saying, "Oh God, no", first thought...
9/11. But they showed the plane intact, so I was a bit confused. And riveted. Then, of course I came to DC to see what the family knew.
What a horrible sign of the times!
As I write, (4:50pm) the whole body of the plane is just barely above water.
By the Grace of God, it was daylight!!!

Great example of folks working together, doing their jobs, staying on task, help from others, time of day....

It's wonderful there was a happy ending to this plane crash.
