And I Thought the Life Jackets Were a Formality....

Dude... Did you see this? Or this? The US Airways plane that landed in the river today??

How amazing was that?? Everyone was rescued. And while the reports aren't in from all those who were taken to hospitals, by all accounts this was a miracle.

And I always thought the life jackets on planes were kind of a formality -- that if you hit the water there was no chance you'd ever get to use them.

That could be because the first umpteen flights I ever took were into / out of Lubbock. Not a lot of water to be found up there.

I have changed my mind. Next time, I'll pay more attention to my seat cushion / flotation device!
