Very cool. It is amazing how calm the pilot was.

Pretty neat. I heard on the news this morning that several passengers are filing lawsuits against the pilot of all people. I did not get the details on the lawsuits.

Captn is a true hero. I still find it hard to believe that no one videoed the landing in the Hudson (at least I have not seen a tape of it).

this is the proof that the Armed forces trained pilots have true Grit !!!

not so true on the guys building hours in a 150 cessna that eventually get there !

if they dont take off from the wrong runway first as the Kentucky flight years back.

Thats probably the most disgusting thing I have ever heard. If it weren't for the calmness and skill of the pilot all those people plus some on the ground could be dead.

Its not like he hit the geese on purpose. People these days are sue happy. I wouldn't be surprised if some sleeze bag attorney called the passengers and sold them the idea.

Cool animation though.

Well, when he was losing airspeed he did tell the copilot to goose the engines....

public stoning for being ungraitful seems in order. Where's the line for the rocks?

Glen: That video brought tears to my eyes. But that won't stop me from rounding up a couple bags of just the right size stones.
