Fantastic landing. What I was also impressed with is how immediately the crew started emptying the plane. The rear door opens three seconds after full-stop, and people are on the pavement ten seconds later! The biggest delay is the chute inflating!

They all performed really well - inside and outside the aircraft. It certainly helped that they all had more than enough time to prepare.

Also great: 2:15 minutes after full stop, they had three (!) busses arriving. Can't complain about the service! wink

"On Wednesday cranes and air cushions were able to lift the aircraft off the runway with the engines remaining attached to the wings, the gear could subsequently be released and the aircraft was towed to a hangar for further assessment of the damage, which after a first check is said to be surprisingly small."

Here's a video taken from inside the airplane, not too good at first, but still...

Nice find Whuts! I had to watch and listen very closely to tell when the plane touched down, and the only thing I noticed was that people applauded. No sound of scraping or screaming!

I couldn't tell they landed until he looked out the window.

Here's an NYC Aviation link to video of the damage on the aircraft.  May be a write-off but, externally, it really doesn't look that bad.

Could have been a lot worse! In fact, I was expecting it to be much worse then that.

an updated article...

I think that emptying a plane with 231 people in 90 seconds is pretty good don't you?

Remarkable actions on the part of all crew involved in this.

   Yup! >>> Light of day, home airport >>> And low on fuel ( good idea for belly landing ). Plus repairs by home mechanics and land at a very familiar airport, familiar language, familiar procedures and company and company mechanics ( who are familiar with that specific aircraft ) on-line for advice. All in all putting everything possible in favor of a successful landing! Which turned out to be the case.
   Worked out to be good aeronautical decision making on the PICs part.

Capt. Tad Wrona hailed as hero, compared to Sully (Captain C.B. "Sully" Sullenberger, US Airways flight 1549). This clip contains an interview with a passenger and video footage from inside the B767 as it touches down.
