Thoughts and well wishes to all those in the Hudson river at this time - passengers, as well as all the rescue workers.
- US Airways flight 1549 from LGA to Charlotte
Air temp =21, water = 43, as reported by CNN.

We must have been starting our threads at the same time, sorry about that.

That's ok - it happens!
I just got the CNN breaking news email here @ work. (signed up for that after 9/11)

At least they have a LOT of rescue workers there and the ferry boats were right on scene.

Hadn't heard that. Going to turn on the TV. Reminiscent of the Potomac crash quite awhile back.

It appears that everyone made it safely out of the plane. The pilot and rescue crew apparently did an awesome job.

Oh good! I couldn't find any survivor updates. Just that they were ferrying them out.

Miracle everyone got out...especially in the water! Bird strikes are very common, and sometimes they do enough damage to drop a plane from the sky. Looks like this may be the case....pre-investigation of course.

What's the deal with airplanes today! We had a close call today too...total hydraulic failure. Current temp: -10F. Our firetruck froze up waiting for the landing.
Here we are in action earlier today.

Individuals who believe they may have family members on board flight
1549 may call US Airways at 1-800-679-8215 within the United States.

I saw it happen! I was in Manhattan and I don't know something made me turn around and look up and, I have to tell you, when I saw that plane, my heart dropped. I thought, here we go again...

Thank God it wasn't another attack and that everyone got out safely. That pilot is a hero and, it is a sight I won't soon forget.

Sounds like Capt. Sully was one heck of a pilot!
Looks like the people of NYC & Jersey really came together to help...in a hurry!

Way to go New York & Jersey! Yay
