Coast Guard Video Of Hudson River Crash

From LiveLeak:

The plane ditches at two minutes into the clip.

It is simply amazing (and a credit to their training) how quickly the crew got the passengers out onto the wings.

    It looked like the crew had the people out on the wings in about 30 seconds. Amazing stuff.
    If I ever fly again, I want that pilot at the controls.

    Semper Fi.

    For your reading amusement….From the American Thinker link in the sidebar……

    Rush Limbaugh may have been the first person to point out that greenies have made the protection of birds (especially waterfowl) a major priority, and an increase in bird population is a goal they have achieved — that may deserve blame for the crash, if anything is to be blamed other than an Act of God.

    Greg Pollowitz of NRO did the legwork and discovered that none other than New York Senator Chuck Schumer boasted of being responsible for an earmark that increased the population of Canada geese right in the neighborhood of LaGuardia Airport, from which the doomed aircraft took off:

    Not to pick nits, but Mr. Pollowitz’s claims are mistaken. That was primarily an earmark to clear (some of) the geese from Central Park — using border collies. This program was quite modest and has had only very limited success.

    It’s a bit of a stretch to say that these very same geese then moved to the La Guardia area.

    Whereas, the regulation we posted here was directly to the point of geese control around NY airports.
