A US Airway jet crashed in the Hudson River a bit ago. Looks like everyone is fine. The pilot put it down after a possible bird strike and engine explosion/failure on take-off. It's in one piece floating in the river. Amazing.

Here's one just after the crash. Everyone got out on the wings and were picked up by boats immediately on scene.

The pilot did a controlled landing and by all accounts did a perfect flare just before plopping it down on the surface of the water. Plane is entirely intact.

One of the gals that works for us had two friends on that flight! :eek:

They are both fine, but got taken to two seperate hosptials for a look over... CRAZY!

We are praying they'll be reunited tonight (husband and wife).
