It Was a Miracle - Please Acknowledge It As So
A US Airways airplane crashed into the Hudson River on Thursday afternoon after geese apparently entered the engines causing them to malfunction just minutes after takeoff.
Incredibly, every single passenger and crew member was rescued from the frigid waters thanks to an absolutely extraordinary and perfectly executed emergency landing procedure by the pilots. Mayor Michael Bloomberg met with the heroic pilot afterward, 57-year-old Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger.
Can't say you've ever witnessed a miracle? Well, my friends, now you have. Let the skepticism go and admit it. Next time I fly, you think I'll stand a chance of requesting Sully pilot it?
