PLANE DOWN IN HUDSON RIVER!
US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 headed from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina, was down in the river after a failed takeoff, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. CNN
FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown also said preliminary information indicates a bird strike. The plane was in the air for about three minutes before it went down, the FAA said.
“The plane shook a bit and … you could smell smoke and fire and immediately the plane started turning,” Panero said. “All of a sudden, the captain came on and said, ‘Brace for landing,’ and that’s when we knew we were going down.”
I was listening to the radio on the way in, and they said that ALL passengers have been rescued! ALL OF THEM! well will keep you updated.
