CBS news just said something about the plane hitting a bird. I didn't catch all of the report.

it's down in the hudson, floating south. there's ferries all around it, along with coast guard and police boats.

and yes, it's a reported bird strike. i'll bet the bird had a bluetooth.

Plane hit a flock of geese and the pilot put down in the river on purpose

Supposedly engine was on fire

I believe it's uptown/Bronx area

146 passengers

Water temp is 40 degrees

Watching now, no idea how many on the flight yet, but plane seems intact, and they think it was a flock of birds.
One ferry is throwing life jackets to a wraft to bring to passengers.
3 cheers to the pilot!!!!!
Water landing preferable to land landing.

I am amazed that I get breaking news on DC.

Flipped over to the link on Drudge (CBS)

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!
