Miracle in New York.







Passengers who were aboard the US Airways flight that crash-landed into New York’s Hudson River have praised the courage and skill of the pilot in bringing the plane down without loss of life. “He did an amazing job — kudos to him,” one said of former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger.

I had a long conversation with the pilot. He walked the plane twice after everybody else was off and tried to verify that there was nobody else on board — and assures us there was not.”

Sullenberger apparently was forced to make an emergency landing after geese were sucked into one or both of the jet’s engines. An eyewitness working on the west side of Manhattan said the belly of the plane touched the water first.

An official who heard tape recordings of the radio traffic from Flight 1549 reported the pilot was extraordinarily calm during the event.

“There was no panic, no hysterics,” the official said. “It was professional, it was calm, it was methodical. It was everything you hoped it could be.”
