Airbus airplane crashed into the Hudson River, New York City
A regular airplane of US Airways airline company (flight #1549) departing from New York City, La Guardia airport (LGA) going to Charlotte, NC Douglas airport (CLT) crashed into Hudson River, near Manhatten after 3 minutes of flying.
What is a really good thing in it is that nobody was hurt and the airplane landed in one piece. The plane was one of the A320 of Airbus with 150 passangers and 6 workers of USAirways on the bord.
It's not sure at this moment but looks like the plane falled down due a crash with a strike bird cloud.
I think in such of moments the first thing coming in one's mind is not the well-known fact, that the airport transportation is the safest way of travelling (even if it is true).

Imagine the people in Manhattan watching the airplane fly towards the city. I would think that this would be even more scary. Anyhow, this stuff happens, but when it comes to safety, air travel is still the safest way to get from poin A to point B unless you are walking :)

I saw that pic today in the news paper. Now waiting for some to upload a video in youtube if someone was able to take any video. I am sure seeing a plane fly above your head and that too very close must have made people think about another 9/11.

scarry!!

But there you can also see, that not everything can be related to 9/11.
Luckily the pilot had such an good experience to manage that situation
