Give me a break.

Let me guess, I'm going to get banned soon, too?
You won't get banned. But your questions indicate that you are not a pilot of any type. There have previously been posts by lawyers and media posing questions and guys here aren't going to be drawn into that. Hence the put downs. You discount the fact that pilots at LGA and numerous eye witnesses saw this plane go down. If it was slow its because they either had no power, or minimal power and were doing everything they could to prolong flight. As far as I'm concerned, the crew were heroes and this was a miracle as I'm amazed a plane with under wing engines didn't come apart on impact.

I'm VERY troubled by yesterday's ditching of Flight 1549. It doesn't make sense to me.

Consider these points:

- Apparently, a flock of birds knocked out two engines but didn't leave an impact on the nose (as you know much more flimsy than engines).



- This picture is heavily Photoshopped... when you zoom in, you see all sorts of cut and paste artwork... even the USAir logo is pasted onto the plane. Why?

Also in this picture are dozens and dozens of "survivors"... it's hard to count because the picture is so fuzzy and distant (a common theme... distant and fuzzy pics). How can more than 20 people stand on a wing and not collapse it?

- Where are the closeup pictures... if you watch any of the coverage yesterday, all of the camera angles were distant shots... even with the media within hundreds of yards of the scene. Why?

- As of this moment, I've yet to see a single video of the ditching... not one, And I've searched everywhere (including YouTube) -- how can this be? Everyone seems to have a cell phone these days... especially in New York. What about CCTV cameras from the Port Authority... someone has to have a video of this, yet we see nothing. Why?

- One pilot (who if I remember posted here in this thread) lived near the crash scene admits he didn't see the plane ditch... didn't hear the plane ditch, but then saw the plane floating. Odd don't you think?

- The only witnesses of the actual ditching were members of the media (who as you know cover all sorts of things up)... example:
"I just thought, 'Why is it so low?' And, splash, it hit the water," said witness Barbara Sambriski, a researcher at The Associated Press.

- The media is reporting, "It appears to be the first time that a large commercial jet liner ever has made a successful controlled landing into a body of water." Another coincidence. A "Miracle" is the media mantra about this. Can this plane really survive a ditching without nearly a scratch... really?

I could go on and on with minor stuff, but I hope you get my drift.

Your thoughts?

First of all, YOUR ARE A CONSPIRACY THEORIST.

There is no question about that.

I bet you believe President Bush was behind the Sept. 11 Attacks to or Hurricane Katrina was a Military Experiment that went wrong.

Second of all, you must have some set on you to Monday Night Quarter Back this thing.
You should leave these discussions to ACTUAL pilots.

I am not a commercial pilot. I own an internet marketing business.

I am not a lawyer nor a member of the media. I DESPISE both.

I have no skin in this game. I don't know the pilots, crew or pax.

I'm trying to figure this thing called life. It's not what it seems.

The vast majority of the responses here actually make me think there's more to this... I was actually hoping my questions would get debunked. For the exception of the wing point... they haven't.

Sorry. I don't think Bush was involved in 9/11 at all.

And I don't think Katrina was a Military Experiment gone wrong.

I'd like to stay focused on yesterday's crash, though.

Very well. Then leave.

You've already violated the letter and the spirit of the terms of service of this board. Hopefully, the moderators will step up and ban you as they should.

PERHAPS IF ENOUGH POSTERS COMPLAIN THIS WILL HAPPEN FASTER? (hint, hint)

This forum is specifically for WORKING COMMERCIAL PILOTS. Frankly, I think you've already violated the

Ok, well your ridiculous theory is shutdown by the pilots.

So get out of here. End of discussion.

Then you should consider taking the opinions of several pilots that there is nothing hidden or secretive about this mishap.

Well, sir, it's pretty obvious you came here with that opinion and now you are refusing to budge from it. If I asked you about something in the internet marketing business and you gave me your best answer, would you think I'm nuts if I refused to believe your honesty? What would you think if I started accusing you of hiding the truth from me?

remember that those winds can support that entire aircraft weight three to four times. (Read a half a million pounds) These wings are strong. Heck they have that many people on em when they are going mtc work.

It is also quite possible to have birds not hit the nose and go in to the engines. It appears that there were bird strikes above the flight deck windows.

There is not conspiracy with it!
