Flight 1549

flight1549I don’t know about you, but When I heard about US Airways Flight 1549 crash landing into the Hudson River, my first thought was about the lives that would be lost in the catastrophic crash. My heart felt heavy as we heard how a possible bird strike had disabled the plane. Images of the plane floating in the river gave us hope that a majority of the people may have survived. And then, as the story started to unfold, and the reports of getting all 155 passengers and crew off the plane alive, my heart lightened. The response of emergency personnel, the pilot, crew and the calm reactions of the passengers resulted in an amazing story. Of course, I’d rather the plane would have landed on a runway at it’s destination of Charlotte, NC, but under the circumstances, who could ask for a better landing!
