I think this pilot should be given some sort of award, I dont fly anymore because of thinking that something will happen on take off , so close to the ground yet soooo far way! The fact that he not only landed with the plane pretty much intact, he helped get the passengers out AND went into the plane AGAIN to make sure that eveyone is safe.

I feel that I am a caring person, and always try to help out if someone is hurt, or call emergency if there is a car crash, etc., you know , just a nice person. But this man went so far out of his way, Im sure at some point there could have been a fire on the plain- but Again this man went back to make sure everyone was safe.

God bless you Sir , in my mind you are truely a hero.

OK,Im done.............

It'd be cool if you could actually see some details in the photos. How come TMZ never has any high resolution photos on this site? You do realize we can't see any details in this tiny pictures?

The plane is built to land on water and THEY forgot to put the rubber on IT-It`s called a ditch-switch that should have been used.It`s called a a better one next time?.Turbine was defective and broke away-it should have remained intacked Even with the bird strikes.RADAR is to be used to check for Birds and I`am sure birds were KNOWN to be in the area.People are way to fast to build Hero`s with halos with our country falling apart...PRESS built this hero as a coverup of a F`UP by the airlines including the crew.People got hurt HOPEFULLY they will be Fixed B4 the next F`UP.Air Fights need better safety regs NOT flyning by the seat of the pants airlines with half awake crews.
