Flight 1549 Heroes – Capt. Sullenberger, Flight Crew & First Responders

February 13, 2009

This is a Genuine G-Shot prepared in tribute to a true hero: Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, the Airbus 320 pilot who made the remarkable emergency miracle water landing on January 15,2009, of US Airway Flight 1549 on New York’s Hudson River in New York City and is posted today on Captain Sullenberger’s Birthday, Jan. 23, 2009.

I hope to meet you tomorrow when the City Council and Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich honors you as a home-town hero and present to you a special video DVD presentation in honor of all the Heroes of the Miracle of USA Airways Flight 1549, your well disciplined, trained, experienced and courageous Flight crew and all the “first responders”, public safety and Joe-citizen alike, as deep down we are all heroes and we know one when we see one.

Experience does indeed count, I am about the same age as Capt. Sully, with 27 years experience as a San Francisco 911 police, fire and medical dispatchers with the police department, City and County of SF Department of Emergency Management, and previous experience in public service as Mayor and Councilman of the City of San Bruno. I can also attest to the value of training, discipline and experience and the need to keep a cool head as so many lives depends upon our every move when seconds really do count and people must do the right thing.

Well done Captain Sully and all the heroes of Flight 1549 — We all have reason to be proud of you as a real American hero.

NEW YORK (AP) — A cool-headed pilot maneuvered his crippled jetliner over New York City and ditched it in the frigid Hudson River on Thursday; all 155 on board were pulled to safety as the plane slowly sank. It was, as New York Governor Patterson said, “a miracle on the Hudson.”

One victim suffered two broken legs, a paramedic said, but there were no other reports of serious injuries, just lots of wet socks, Capt. Sully walked the entire length of the sinking aircraft twice to make sures all passengers had safely exited the plane.

US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., struck a flock of birds after takeoff just minutes earlier at LaGuardia Airport, apparently disabling both engines.

The pilot, identified as Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III of Danville, Calif., “was phenomenal,” passenger Joe Hart said. “He landed it — I tell you what, the impact wasn’t a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you.”

“Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river,” he said.

No doubt due to his 40 years experience as a glider pilot.

Capt. Sully thank you for a job well done!

Mass UFO Sighting New Jersey 9 Jan 09 !!

January 14, 2009

New Jersey-01-05-09-While driving home near interstate 287 northbound, I pulled over to watch the lights. They lasted about 15-20 minutes, then shot off into the distance.

I took a short video taken with my camera. My passenger and I both experienced awe as we watched. Neither of us have seen anything remotely close to this before.

The lights must have been visible for miles. They changed in pattern and shape throughout the 20 minutes or so.

Second Report

As an amateur astronomer of nearly 20 years experience, this is the second time I have seen something in the sky that is difficult to explain. I was on my apartment stoop smoking a cigarette when my neighbor, who was just coming home after parking his car in our complexs lot, called my attention to something around the corner of the building.

I moved to share his line of sight and immediately saw an equilateral triangle composed of six red lights. The lights shone at approximately -2.5 magnitude and covered an area of roughly 9 square degrees in the sky.

Three lights marked each of the triangles corners, and three others were arranged outside around them, forming a larger triangle, equal in proportion and orientation to the inner one.

As I watched, the individual points were in motion with respect to each other, but the group appeared to hang motionless in the southwest sky. At this point, the approximate alt-az of the lights was 160°(SSE) by 35° elevation.

I ran inside and retrieved my 6×30 image stabilized binoculars to get a better look. The formation had shifted to an irregular lambda shape of five or six lights when I came back outside.

Through the binoculars, the lights appeared as tiny points against a backdrop of clouds illuminated by nearby Morristown.

They were clearly below the cloud deck compared to airplanes elsewhere in the sky at the time, and appeared to be separate objects in no way connected by a larger structure.

They moved steadily in ascending, lateral, and descending directions in a manner that seemed to display deliberate coordination, but there was no noticeable sound of aircraft.

I returned inside again and readied my digital camera after waking my fiancé. By the time I started collecting video, the visible lights had been reduced to three or four and had moved to approximately 130°(SE) by 20° elevation and the formation covered less than the area of the full moon.

By this time, eight minutes had passed from when I originally observed the lights.

My fiancé and I watched them, with two of my neighbors, as they hung low in the southeast sky, flickering in a tiny triangle. They shifted into a straight line before the individual lights began to rapidly descend beyond tree line one by one.

One or two could still be seen hovering near the horizon in the distance before they vanished, leaving only a solitary beacon remaining higher up until it abruptly faded.

If the lights had not ascended during this event, I would have been fairly certain they were some kind of aviation flares, but I cannot confirm, as I am not familiar with that sort of thing.
