I just have to give props to the pilot of that plane that had to make that splash landing yesterday in Manhattan. he definitely handled the situation. this story is particularly fascinating to me because just over a month ago i was there riding my bike up the west side and under that Washington bridge as part of my birthday adventure. there are always people walking, running, and riding along the Hudson especially right there near the heart of Midtown. wow that must have been a site to behold!
however, i read somewhere that bird populations are growing. stories like this could occur with increased frequency if those expert people don’t figure out something.
my recommendation on behalf of HST: minimize human flight; it’s for the birds.
