Was so busy today I just heard about this. I'm surprised nobody has posted it.

Quote:
Sources tell CNN that Chelsey B. "Sully" Sullenberger was piloting US Airways flight 1549 from New York's LaGuardia airport to Charlotte, North Carolina, when at least one of the plane's engines failed.


Quote:
US Airways said all 150 passengers and the crew are alive and safely off the plane.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the pilot did not leave the plane without checking to make sure every passenger had been evacuated from the plane.

"It would appear that the pilot did a masterful job of landing the plane in the river and then making sure that everybody got out," Bloomberg said at a press conference Thursday.

Pilot is a hero. I think he is an ace-pilot.

Yea, there are numerous reports of one engine failing when a bird is sucked into it but its very rare that 2 birds are sucked by the same plane, nevertheless the pilot was highly experienced and managed to "glide" and land the plane, pretty damn impressive.
