Not entirely true... That aircraft cartwheeled because the left engine hit a shallow reef. Not so much that it hit the water with the left engine first.
I recall it only being the drag of the engine that destroyed that one, There was a show on Discovery Channel about it and that is what they claimed.

This story made it all the way up to our local news. Incredible.

Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Although all engines are tested for bird strikes, they are not rated for Canadian Geese. These are easily +10 lb birds that will destroy the fan if they hit in the right spot. Although he engine casing is designed to prevent debris from the strike to damaging other aircraft systems, the engine will still fail. If the bird hit near the hub of the engine, there is a good probability of debris entering the core. The core is not designed to handle FOD, resulting in loss of power and most likely failure.

Peace through superior firepower

If the pilot worked in our company, he'd get fired.
Reasons:

1) He's over 50 years old.
2) He's got more then 20 years of experience.
3) He worked in favor of the customer.
4) He took a decision on his own.

After he'd left the company, he would get sued.
For voluntarily damaging company assets.

Thilo

P.S.: The crooks from HR would check if he finished the mandatory "Standards of Business Conduct" and "Passion for the Customer" trainings and send his manager a report..

You don't know how true that is in corporate America now. Everything is run by a checksheet, don't deviate from it.

that is sad, that is pathetic, and that is reality around here these days... I hope none of the injured sue the pilot for exposing them to hypothermia or something along those lines...

I am immensely impressed at how calm everyone stayed.

"We are going in the Husdon."

"What did he say?"

"He said we are going in the Hudson."

Impressive decision making skills. This could have gone way, way worse.
If I were on the defense team for the airline I would drive that fact home.

Sign up on liveatc.net and listen to the recording. It follows them from as they're picking up ATIS to after they go into the hudson.
