I watched it on Fox news... They have a lot of pictures and video of the people getting out of the plane. I guess the pilot was a hero, not only did he miss coming down in populated areas but he also missed hitting a bridge...

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely and in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting "Holy Crap, What a Ride!"

Fast reacting boat captains got the people off the plane/water... All around there were a lot of heros here. From what they are saying, that plane was drifting in the water too...

The pilot also walked the plane aisles many times to make sure that there was not a single person left in the plane.

It sure is too bad we don't hear more stories of people working together and being heroes to help others when in need instead of the violence and hate.

The pilot's (see: "Hero") name is Chesley Sullenber.
