Canadian Geese apparently took out two engines.

So far it seems all passengers and employees got out safely. Pilots did an amazing job landing it safely.



Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

I wonder how often BOTH engines of a twin-engined jet are taken out in this way? Remarkable save by the pilots.

The United States Coast Guard has released absolutely stunning video footage captured by surveillance cameras of the crash of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River. Watch for yourself as the miracle landing unfolds.
