He said, "Miracle on the Hudson"
"Miracle on the Hudson" is what one man on the evening news said last night when discussing the pilot's landing the commercial airliner so perfectly on the Hudson River between NY and NJ.
Here is an interesting article with pictures. And here is an interview by Greta Van Susteren.
It was a miracle!
Everyone survived! And the plane intact. He didn't even have time to dump the fuel!
So many things could've gone wrong... but thankfully they didn't.
And I can't imagine how cold those wet people were in the FRIGID air temperatures.
Kudos to that pilot for his quick thinking and professional skills which helped bring them all to safety.
I really do think there must've been angels on the wings or under the plane. He was skilled, but many pilots are skilled and don't have good outcomes. It will be interesting to hear the final assessment of what happened.
And it was awesome how all the boats went immediately to their rescue!
Everything worked out so well...I do think it was a miracle.
It was refreshing to hear something good for a change on the news, particularly something as miraculous as this event is. :)
