USAirways Flight 1549 Hudson River Crash

I’m sure everyone is aware by now of the water crash into the Hudson River of USAirways flight 1549 en route from LaGuardia airport to Charlotte, NC at approximately 3:30 pm EST today.

I’ve flown that same flight and taken the Circle Tour around Manhattan that takes place partially on the Hudson River and boards at a dock/pier right where the plane came down, so it’s easy to picture most of that situation.

Kudos to the pilot, crew and ferry and Circle Line boat captains who all contributed to there being no fatalities. They were cold and wet, with 21 degree air and 40 degree water temperatures, and perhaps some broken bones, but no deaths or serious injuries according to all reports at this time.
