I took a bunch of shots. This is from a pier near Perry Street, as the plane floated down the Hudson. I just cannot get over the skill of the pilots. I’ll talk about this later, but I took flying lessons in high school and one of the first things they teach you is how to land the plane if you lose your engines. “Look for a highway!” my instructor told me (laughing). But I learned in a tiny Cessna 150. I just cannot get over doing this with a jet ON THE WATER.
For those who haven’t heard, a plane had to make an emergency landing on the Hudson, all 155 aboard survived.
There are seat cushions and other debris floating all down the river.
It’s hard to see but that’s the plane sticking out of the water, this is around Battery Park City.
More rescue workers.
I think this was a diver, but I’m not positive. By the way, it was freezing. FREE! ZING!
Another plane shot. I couldn’t get close. “Move back! This is a federal crime scene!”
They’re waiting for a crane, I was told.
I took this walking back home.
The never ending stream of rescue workers heading downtown, very reminiscent of 9/11.
