Plus, it's right-side up and didn't spin in.

Must be one of those APACHE airplanes! Looks like a 47.

AND, no steps!

They should give the Pilot a $1,000,000 bonus and send him to on vacation for a month! He probably saved the company over $1,000,000,000 in law suits!

Newcasters all over are calling it a "lucky crash".

Bull$hit. It was a world-class emergency landing.

"Sullenberger" (the pilot) is a name to be remembered.

Here's a report that has it right:

"Hero Pilot, Air Force Vet Landed Plane Safely"

Here is his Facebook Page

I bet that had a helluva lot to do with it. Give that man a medal.

He couldn't have landed in a better spot, it seems- right there where the ferrys were... a mile or two down the river and the story might have been different.

Landed at LGA yesterday..... my wife and I fly all the time but we were a little extra nervous yesterday........ when we landed the whole plane broke in to applause....... I guess everyone is a little on edge after these incidents.... God Bless that Pilot though......he made all the right decisions and he made them fast......Kudos to him and his crew!!
