Airplane lands on Hudson River

US Airways plane with more than 150 people has crash landed on the Hudson River. It's on CNN and they are interviewing Julie Pukelis who took an amazing photograph of the passengers standing on the wings of the plane floating down the Hudson. She said she used a used a camera at the eyepiece of a telescope.

It just goes to show you can buy all the fancy cameras and top quality lenses but someone in the right place with any old camera and a telescope could get the photo the media want. Also, I might pay more attention to the life jacket instructions next time I'm on a plane, I always assumed they just served to make it easier to scoop up the bodies after a "landing" on water, but this time EVERYONE survived.
