Did you see that?

All in all, I think we all wish we were on that plane. You could dine out on that story for years. "One time I landed in the middle of the Hudson, midtown. You heard me."

I went and took some pictures for you guys. The plane is still in the river, at Battery Park City. The streets are closed off and clogged with firetrucks. All the lobbies of all the luxury waterfront condos are swarming with cops and firefighters, guys in diving gear, etc.

Shouldn't it say "FAIL"?

No way the goose! If nobody dies when a plane lands in a river, that's a success.

Also, M, when I heard about this, your blog is the first place I came to get the story.

Phil, that is so lovely.

At any rate, it turns out it was the wing, not the tail.

I thought it was French for "This plane is history".

I thought it was French too. Weird.

I strive for the ambiguity.
