    Default Jet lands in Hudson river

    A USAir Airbus A-320 lost both engines after takeoff from La Guardia and landed in the Hudson river. The amazing part, everyone lived!

    The fact that the pilot got that airplane down without it breaking up on impact is incredible.

    NEW YORK — A US Airways pilot who safely landed an Airbus 320 in the Hudson River off the shores of Manhattan without any fatalities is being hailed as a hero.

    So, who exactly is Chesley B. Sullenburger III?

    Sullenburger's daughter, contacted by FOXNews.com Thursday night, declined to confirm details about her father, though TMZ reports that he is a former Air Force flight leader and training officer who flew F-4s from 1973 to 1980.

    The celebrity Web site reported he served as a blue force mission commander in red flag exercises and spent years as an Air Line Pilots Association Local Air Safety chairman, accident investigator and national technical committee member.

    During this time, Sullenburger reportedly participated in several NTSB investigations of large-scale plane accidents.

    "We've had a 'Miracle on 34th Street' and now we have a miracle on the Hudson," said New York Gov. David Paterson.

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the pilot, whom he declined to idenitify, told him he walked the plane twice to make sure everyone was off the plane, before exiting the aircraft

    WOW!!!! What a great man.....

    CNN is reporting that the Airbus was able to float safely to shore on Mister Sullenburger's gigantic balls.

    ...and a new pair of pants. I'm sure the pucker-factor was off the scale while he was trying to bring the plane down safely.

    Bravo to Mr. Sullenburger!

    I first heard of this driving in to my teaching job today around 3:00. When I turned NPR on again around 5:30, they were reporting all passengers and crew had survived and been rescued in relative short order. Apparently the pilot searched the plane twice before leaving to confirm all people were off it. It sounds like civilians and rescue authorities ALL acted very well on this one. I know big news thrives on tragedy for the drama of it, but I don't recall the last time I was so happy and excited to hear a news report like this one. Plane goes down, EVERYBODY survives (and with minimal injury), and rescues go smoothly. Good all around!

    i just caught this on the news here in the U.K.
    with everything else going on in the world today, it's a really refreshing story of bravery and triumph. My hat goes off to the pilot and crew for doing their job and saving the lives of the passengers.....i wonder if they'll get the chance to eat the goose at some point??!

    Sullenburger is not a good name for this man. It makes him sound like an unhappy teenage bigmac.

    I say he changes his name to Chesley B Steel-Cojones Snr.

    co-pilot "Both engines out. We can't make it to La Guardia. We're all going to die, there's a goose in my soup ...arrggghhh...."

    Ches "Relax Shirley. Ladies and gentlemen. Assume the position"

    The fuck on. Rock.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
