How crazy is this? A plane went down apparently after hitting a flock of birds in to the Hudson river earlier today. According to CNN and rescued passengers, it was about as nice of a plane crash as you could have had landing in to a river.
This is something I think about every time I get on a plane. Who doesn’t? I think I would have been in hysterics if I were on it though. Though, seeing that I was landing in water would have made things a lot better for me. I can handle water.
There was footage on CNN of people being put on to the rescue boats, and some of them were smiling! That’s great. Well, about as great as this situation can be.
