Not the right day to read about a plane crash involving the mention of New York. Glad it's a totally different flight and no fatalities.

I'm glad no one was hurt. I work for US Airways, but I work in Philly.

I work at the airport as a customer service agent, but I could never work as an attendent on the plane. I would be so scared.

Glad nobody was killed - the pilot did an amazing job.

One of my friends on Twitter posted a pic that someone she knows took from a rescuing ferry: http://twitpic.com/135xa Absolutely incredible!

If I was on the plane and after all is said and done, I've said my thanks, I'd be pretty excited to tell this story to all the people and.. come on now.. it must have been one hell of a thrilling experience.

i thought it was pretty much impossible to land a plane with underwing engines on water, safely. that is a stunning piece of airmanship from the pilots.
Aren't most underwing? And why does this make the difference?
