Plane accident in New York- a US Airways Airbus A320 landed in the Hudson River after an apparent bird strike. Fortunately, it looks like everyone got out okay. 150 passengers and crew. Good piloting there. It could have crashed hard, instead it sort of belly-flopped.

Yikes. The plane is totally under water now.

I get a little bit nervous when I hear about planes crashing in New York, my former home. Especially since 9/11.

ETA: The FAA is now confirming that all passengers and crew are safe! Now they're working on trying to salvage the plane. Passengers are talking to CNN and NBC about their ordeal. Sounds like the pilot did a brilliant job landing the plane.

This only happened an hour ago!
