A USAirways Airbus Jet has crash landed in the Hudson River in New York this afternoon.
The plane with 146 passengers on board, stayed afloat in the water and the rescue of passengers is currently underway as I write (4:30pm EST)
The jet had just taken off from La Guardia Airport and was trying to return after apparently striking a flock of geese. It was destined for Charlotte in North Carolina.
