Amazing yes. Especially with 42 degree water temp.yeah ....all out....holy crap.... amazing
A water landing no less. Unbelievable how he brought it down, without rolling it over... or worse.Amazing rescue effort and superb flying from the pilot. Plane crashes without fatalities, especially with so many passengers, is very very rare.
Just saw an interview and a guy said he saw the pilot try to gain altitude and pulled the nose up and they say that's what made the landing less catastrophic. It kind of glided on the water then came to rest. These pilots did an awesome job.A water landing no less. Unbelievable how he brought it down, without rolling it over... or worse.
'Cept nobody ran :Na_Na_Na_Na:whoa.....they just said it could have been A Flock of Seagulls.
He was an Air Force Instructor in the 70s that I am currently flying with. Beans to Sulley (and his crew!!)PILot did a "Masterful" job landing, not crashing the plane!! Flew F-4s Go Air Force!!!
In the article they say the strike occured below 400 feet!!! Holy, no altitude to even form a glide slope with batman!!
