BULLITIN / U.S. Airways plan lands safely in Hudson R.


A Tempe based U.S. Airways passenger airliner, flight 1549, has made an emergency landing in the Hudson river in New York City. News reports say all 150 aboard are safe.

It is reported that the airplane ran into a flock of birds on takeoff that disabled both engines, forcing the pilot to ditch into New York's Hudson River. Boats on the river immediately came to the rescue of the aircrafts passengers and crew.
