Major Airplane Crashes in New York City

billkozyBillkozy on 03/01/2009

MajorAirplaneCrashesinNewYorkCity Photo By now the whole country has heard about the miraculous Hudson River emergency landing of Flight 1549 of the US Airways Airbus A320 into the Hudson River. A flock of geese had flown into both engines of the craft, disabling it from being able to muster the legs back to LaGuardia from whence it came, nor any other airport.
Captain Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger announced: “Brace for impact because we’re going down” and the heroic pilot glided the disabled jet with masterful skill onto the icy Hudson River that Thursday afternoon. In mere moments, an armada of police, fire and Coast Guard rescuers joined the Circle Line and the New York Waterway ferry service that had already rushed to the site.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared: “This outcome is as good as you could ever hope and pray for.”

Here in this quiz is a guided tour of the history of airplane crashes in the New York City area.
Good Luck, and please rate the quiz afterward if you have a chance. Exit doors are to the rear of the quiz.
Please fly again and....buh bye.

I was 7 at the tome #3 occurred and don't remember exactly where the planes collided but debris fell on Staten Island (an engine from the Constellation fell into a ballfield across from the apartment building I lived in) and Brooklyn (rumor has it that there were bodies hanging from the telephone wires, probably not true sonce most utility wires there are underground). I also seem to recall that a baby was found alive in Brookyln but died a day or two later. Anyway seems like there are two answers to this question - Brooklyn and Staten Island. Enjoyed the quiz and surprised that I got an 80 on it!
