NY Hudson US Airways Crash - 1/15/09

A US Airways plane crashed into the Hudson River on Thursday afternoon after striking a bird that disabled two engines, sending passengers fleeing for safety in the frigid waters,

No one was seriously injured when a U.S. Air plane crash landed into the Hudson River near Manhattan on Thursday. A calm, experienced pilot and quick rescues are credited for the survival of everyone on board a U.S. Airways plane that crashed into New York's Hudson River.

Less than a minute after take-off from LaGuardia, veteran pilot Chesley Sullenberger told air traffic controllers that his airbus 320 had just had two bird strikes. His engines were losing thrust. He wanted to return to LaGuardia. But it quickly became apparent that was not an option. Sullenberger chose to use the Hudson River as his runway. He told his passengers, "brace for impact," and he set it down.

All passengers and crew aboard were reported safe after New York City firefighters and ferries rushed to the aid of the US Airways jet, which floated in the river near the historic aircraft carrier The Intrepid.

If you, a family member, or a client have been injured in a plane crash, you need the help of an aviation attorney.
