US Airways plane lands in the Hudson River

Passengers stand on the wings of a U.S. Airways plane as a ferry pulls up to it after it landed in the Hudson River in New York, January 15, 2009. Local media said the plane was an Airbus with 146 passengers and five crew which had just taken off from La Guardia Airport and was trying to return after apparently striking a flock of birds.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic photograph captured by Brendan McDermid, we witness a remarkable event that unfolded on January 15,2009. A US Airways plane can be seen gracefully gliding onto the calm waters of the Hudson River in New York City. Passengers are standing on the wings of the aircraft, awaiting rescue as a ferry approaches to aid them. The image encapsulates both fear and relief; it serves as a testament to human resilience and collective heroism. The Airbus carrying 146 passengers and five crew members had just taken off from La Guardia Airport when it encountered an unexpected obstacle - a flock of birds. This unfortunate collision forced the pilot to make an emergency landing in one of America's most famous waterways. Local media reports indicate that all individuals aboard survived this harrowing ordeal thanks to swift action and effective teamwork. As they stand atop the wings, their expressions reveal mixed emotions: shock, gratitude, and perhaps even disbelief at their miraculous escape. This photograph is not merely a snapshot frozen in time but rather an enduring symbol of hope amidst adversity. It reminds us that even in moments of crisis, humanity can rise above challenges through courage and compassion. Brendan McDermid's skillful composition captures both the vulnerability of those stranded on the wings and the strength embodied by rescuers rushing to their aid. Through his lens, he immortalizes an extraordinary moment where ordinary people became heroes – united by survival against all odds.
