Wow! Miracle on the Hudson


Stories about the incredible emergency landing of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River today are all over the place and it’s an amazing true-life story.

More information will no doubt come out in the next few days, but for now, here are a few links to Web sites with a good round-up of stories about what happened. has articles, videos, and a photo gallery of more than 70 images. The New York Times has even more extensive coverage, including regular updates about the status of the plane, including information about where the plane is tied up (“along the promenade south of Chamber Street and north of Battery Park City, near Warren Street…”) and a phone number for people to call if they find anything that might belong to any of the passengers.

And what have we all learned from this?  Pay attention to the pre-flight safety instructions.
