USA1549 an A-320 took off out of LGA, headed for CLT.  Went down into Hudson river just off of LGA.  Aircraft is still floating in the water.

I'm watching this now.  The ferry boats are rescuing people off the wings of the plane.  Incredible.

USAir 1549 A320 just crashed into the Hudson after leaving LGA at 3:26pm.  Apparently hit a flock of geese and probably lost both engines.

doesn't look like there's anything for LGA.  Maybe someone knows if there's a feed for the departure freq.

Here's the flightaware map:

They probably never made it off of tower.  If they indeed hit birds, then they most likely never made the switch to dept.  

LGA tower is 118.7
LGA dept is 120.4

It's hard to believe the plane is still floating.  Many airplanes have a floater valve that closes over top of the outflow valve in the water, but with the pax door and the overwing exits open, they're lucky it is still floating.  Except it is floating down the river, so they have to keep up with it.

If this was Air Canada Regional (JAZZ), they wouldn't have had those nice little yellow inflatable life jackets. rolleyes
I hope they take note.

"Jeff" on the news seems to be getting assaulted by the reporters:

"Jeff, spell your last name"
"Jeff, where are you from?  Conneticut.  WhaR are you doing here then?"
"Jeff, was the water cold?"
"Jeff, what is your favorite color?"


Reporters are morons.  The news is full of morons.  Apparently it was an Airbus A-737.  That's a new one....

In this case I wonder whether they even contacted NY Departure or were too busy.  Fly the plane first.  smiley

What irks me the most is Jeff, on his golfing trip is asked:

"Do you think the pilot did a good job landing and avoiding the buildings"?

His reply "I don't know. I can't say if he did or didn't"

sigh.... sad

They need to get people that know something about aviation. Screens over the engines? One bird went through both engines? People are idiots for those comments!!!

From the looks of it and myself being an airline pilot, I would say the crew did an outstanding job. The aircraft came down intact and a lot if not all people are safe.

An AirBoeing, huh?   I'll bet folks in Washington are happy about that conglomerate.
