    This pilot was amazing. I thought i did a good job pulling over after blowing a trailer tire, then this guy comes along and lands a plane in the drink not killing anyone. Amazing.

    not sayin the guy is any less than a hero for landing it, but we all know self preservation took over here and he landed it kinda tired of see'n it on the news, howabout some real unbiased news with no fluff

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Controller: "Which runway would you like captain?"

    Captain: "Hudson"

    Controller: "Come again?"

    fyi, it was a joke just sayin in times of crisis , the human mind becomes sharper and its the self preservation written into our genes that makes it happen

    Pretty amazing I think. Pilot had to make a split second decision with complete composure and landed that bitch. Love to see professionals at work under pressure.

    Strap him in a K-boat, the guys meant to be boat racer, he just chose the wrong career. perfect water landing.

    It is amazing what he did, hero or not, he is one hell of a pilot.

    I think 90% of the pilots would have cranked that plane over and headed for the airport. Try to make it no matter what.

    He was amazing and made a excellent choice. Crash on land would have been devastating.

    No "PUN" intended here but......some who perform under life or death situations refer to his calmness as functioning on "Autopilot" due to his training, experience, and expertise!!!! Some professions can relate......guaranteed this dude has already strapped his wings on and flown already without a sweat

    ya'll might want to think about that landing next time you hear of some airline wanting to cut thier pay and increase thier workload to the max.....or the flight attendants......or us mechanics !!!!! and if ya'll think any one of those three jobs mentioned are a walk in the park.........step right up and give it a try.....oh and don't forget to get your pilots certificate to fly commercial, or your A&P certificate to turn wrenches..
