    Pilot reported hitting a flock of geese, according to MSNBC.

    146 pax + 5 crew on board.

    Plane is upright, floating, dozens of boats surrounding the plane to evacuate passengers.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Watching the CNN coverage online; they say it was a gentle landing and the plane is floating. Lots of ferries on the scene picking up people.

    Makes me miss Miles O'Brien.

    Last FlightExplore data (per CNN's Chad Myers) says that it was at 300 feet at 153 knots.

    Possible bird strike.



    Turn on the TV.


    I looked at flightaware a few moments ago. Now , I don't use use it regularly, but in the spot there it showed scheduled altitude, it said 36000 ft but in the spot where it lists actual altitude, it showed 300 ft with a downward arrow.

    Is the downward arrow standard nomenclature on that site?
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    On Passur, rewind to 15:26 http://www4.passur.com/lga.html

    Looks like it climbed north to 3400 feet, then started descending and made a left toward the river and quickly descended heading south.

    Down arrow means the plane is descending.

    Miles O'Brien is our former aviation and space correspondent. He's a pilot (he has a SR22) and knows a lot about aviation.
