Seems there is a video camera around every corner.


The Coast Guard did act very quickly, which is nice.

I wonder why they can't put a bird screen on those engines

The one over Hudson river was a true miracle, saw it on tv a couple days ago, very recent. God bless the pilot who landed the plane safely in the weather.. US Airways? More like US Scareways! Man.. I used to love flying.. :p

Haven't heard about the other one, thanks for posting. :)

If they did that the air wouldn't be able to pass through the engines properly. It's quite obvious that if they could simply put a bird screen there, they would've done that a long time ago.

I fly with Thomson, lucky they managed to land safely.
