There's no articles to quote just yet, but just now a news report came on that said an Airbus of US Airways crashed in the Hudson River.
Shit looks scary.
Hope everyone is ok!
US Airways flight 1549 from LaGuardia to Charlotte
It hit a bird & was trying to return to LaGuardia.
ITS THE TERRORISTS!
THEY'RE TRYING TO TURN THE PLANE INTO A BOAT SO THEY CAN PIRATE LOOT FROM ALL THE VESSELS IN THE HUDSON RIVER AND HOLD THEM RANSOM FOR MONIES!
SILLY TERRORISTS! THATS A PLANE, NOT A BOAT!
It flew into a Flock of Seagulls.
Thats what you get for buying Airbus. It's all about Boeing.
Good thing it made it to the river. We all know what can happen if that plane crashes in the city...
my eyes are glued onto the TV screen. i want to see how they pull off extracting passengers from the plane.
PETA will be upset with this.
So far so good it would seem. On the bright side, this may mean we've reached our plane crash quota for the next few years and us Coachella travelers can fly with confidence.
Everybody survived thankfully.
Fuck the A320's, Fuck US Airways. I'm on that A320 at least twice a week, and would feel much more comfortable in anything but the Airbus
captncrzy is w/ US Airways, correct? she must be busy, busy right now.
Some of you have no fucking idea what you are talking about.
A flock of geese took out both engines. Our pilot, who has thousands upon thousands of hours in the air and in training saved every single life on that plane. We are widely respected in the industry and with the FAA for having one of the most stringent maintenance policies and flight training programs in the world.
This has nothing to do with Airbus vs. Boeing. Airbuses are more environmentally friendly, more economical, and if you talk to most pilots-they'll tell you they prefer the Airbus over the Boeing.
Just because you read some horsehit opinon about which is safer or better constructed or whatever doesn't make you an expert, you stupid lurker asshole. If you don't feel safe on it, why on earth would you fly it? "Gee, I don't think it's safe to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, but it's the fastest way down to the water, so I may as well jump." Fucking dummy.
US Airways sucks geese dicks.
