Plane crashed into hudson river in NYC
US Airways plane crashed into the hudson river just a few hundred feet west of manhattan
just watching the news now getting a better clue what happened... they dont really have answers yet...
reports are one engine blew up while it was over the bronx area
smaller commuter plane... they are saying 100 people on board or so?

my GUESS... given the wings and fusealage and everything all intact... i'm guessing pilots were able to control it into a hydroplane landing and not just a violent impact with the water
146 passengers + crew members ?

departing LAG and landing in the river... they were probably in the air for less than 5 minutes before it went down

there were 146 passengers and 5 crew members on board. they say that 2 birds hit the engines and then disabled them. they say the pilot intentionally landed the plane in the river since he knew something was wrong with the plane.it was a good thing that the pilot did land the plane in the river instead of into manhatten buildings.

it couldn't have happened in a better spot luckily for the passengers and crew... not too many places where you crash in water and there are hundreds of thousands of people watching and tons of boats on the water non-stop in that area that could be there in seconds... so many CG boats, NYC boats, water taxies, ferrys... if it had to happen, good thing it happened in a place where attention could be provided damn near instantly.
another hour of daylight at most...
water temps are ALMOST at point of freezing in the mid 30s
air temps in the teens
