A U.S. Airways plane crashed into the Hudson River in New York today after it did a hit and run on "one or more birds". Who the hell would have ever thought you'd actually need your butt-ugly yellow vest that can be inflated by pulling on the red tabs? Everyone was apparently rescued from the wreck, which blows my mind because had I been on that plane they'd be pulling my dead-from-heart-failure corpse from the wet innards of that Airbus.
The above photos were taken by a man aboard the Ferry that was responding to the scene, and were given to the world via Flickr. Fucking crazy!!!
Fear of flying? Intact!
