Hitchcock's Birds and Planes

Although there is a slim chance of happening (about 1 in 10,000) birds can cause a plane crash. And it happened today right here in NY. This is an amazing Associated Press picture showing the safe evacuation of all 155 passengers. However, a dip in the Hudson river is something that will surely make you stay away from flights (at least for a decent period of time).

Airline passengers wait to board a ferry to be rescued on the wings of a US Airways Airbus 320 jetliner that safely ditched in the frigid waters of the Hudson River in New York, Thursday Jan. 15, 2009 after a flock of birds knocked out both its engines. All 155 people on board survived.
