Today’s drama in the Hudson River sent our newsroom into overdrive. There are still many questions and facts to tease out.
Tomorrow we’ll have follow-up reports on the incredible emergency landing that the pilot pulled off. Everyone’s calling it “Miracle on the Hudson” and it’s actually not an overstatement. Landing a commercial jet in a relatively narrow river flanked by densely populated neighborhoods and skyscrapers is no small feat.
The fact that everyone on board survived despite the frigid waters they landed in – well, that’s nothing short of astounding. We’re eager to hear from the pilot who by all accounts performed heroically under great pressure. We’re working that angle and many others.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the story. Have you ever had a close call while flying? Were you aware that birds are a major threat to airline safety?
See you tomorrow at 10 pm ET.
