New York Plane Crash
Rob Fisher

An incredible story has unfolded on the TV screen in the bar I have just emerged from. An A320 has landed in the Hudson and floated for long enough for everyone to be rescued.

Until now I had assumed that the life jackets and emergency-slides-that-become-life-rafts were just safety theatre, and that planes broke into small pieces on contact with water. Thankfully I was wrong.

Feedback

  1. That was an amazing story, & amazing crew. The bottom line is years of experience mini-emergencies prepare you for the superbowl, or big emergency. http://www.flyinganxiety.com
