    Post U.S Airways Plane Crashes in Hudson River. NYC

    NEW YORK--A small plane carrying more than a dozen people splashed down in the frigid waters of the Hudson River off Manhattan Thursday and survivors were seen standing on the wings awaiting rescue, Reuters witnesses said.

    It was not clear what caused the plane to go down. It was floating on the surface of the fast-moving river and ferries were seen approaching to rescue passengers.

    Um, wow. What's surprising me most is the plane is still floating somewhat even now after a few hours after it happened.

    So glad everyone survived, just shows the real skill and training of the pilots and crew! Just seen the footage on BBC news, everyone is stranded on the wings!

    I can recall only one accident, where a commercial airplane successfully landed on water and it´s many years back in the caribbean. That plane run out of fuel. - This US airways pilot is really an expert.

    Of all the things that occured in this, I'd almost not call it a crash. I'd call it a controlled water landing. Crash makes it sound a lot worse than it ended up.

    Same here. I wouldn't call it a crash at all. More like one of those rare water landing the FA's speak of in your pax briefing..."in the unlikely event of a water-landing..."

    Read as: "in the unlikely event our flight turns into a river cruise..."

    Glad everyone was safe. Heck of a landing too.

    Let's say it that way:
    An outstanding American pilot in combination with solid European craftsmanship and a huge effort by 155 guardian angels ... or more.
    But still an amazing outcome.
