    It didn't crash. It was an emergency landing.

    Hi everyone. Thanks for all the comments. I have to say I never expected this many views and comments, but then I also never expected a plane to end up in the Hudson. Anyway it's back to photos of food and other normal things for me. Remember to keep your cameras close by!

    8 passengers from the crash are on the Ellen Show today, January 22. They haven't seen each other since the crash.

    A good outcome indeed. A miracle.

    I was wondering if I could use this photo of yours on the top of our company calendars this year. I will put at the bottom of the photo "Photo Credit: grego!", or however you would like to be credited.

    We will be running about 70

    Please let me know what you think.

    Dear Gregory,

    I'm a brazilian journalist from TV Brasil producing a news about colisions between planes and birds.

    I saw you have another pictures of this incident, but they are marked with a copyright symbol. Could you authorize me to use these pictures in my news?

    As a public television in Brazil, we can't pay for pictures. We just work with creative commons or other kinds of free licenses.
