They didn't kill themselves quickly enough for you from an engine failure so you wish them a slow death by eating at McDonald's?:D

Ha, and according to the media and 3/4 of the people on this site, say only Sully could do that. At least there was no Flt Att to open a door and screw people more.

That was Sully's youngest kid, Sinbad... The ol' scull got a bit rowdy that one time with Fantasia down in the islands... And out pops 'bad about 9 months later!

Amazing what the genetic combination of a superior aviator and an illiterate American Idol can result in....

-Git 'r done!

Nice job but VERY lucky. They were in a real pickle after the first time it quit. Luckily they got a little more thrust from the engine to get them to that road. Also there was not one car on the road that they landed on. Nice job. Funny how he almost whacked the wing at the end.

Almost only counts in horse shoes, grenade throwing and midget tossing. He cleared the wing on purpose.

Yep, there was a lot of luck here....just like there was a lot of luck in the "Miracle on the Hudson". That might not have turned out so well either under different conditions.

For every youtube video, there will be at least 1 comment accusing it of being fake.
