Since when was a 757 a jumbo jet. I'd class a twin isle plane as a jumbo not a 757.

pelosian you obviously know nothing about aeroplanes you ignoramus. They have a little wheel which steers the plane on the runway. All you do if you are going to hit a bird is turn the wheel FULL right or left instantly and you will miss it. Easy. I've done it on numerous occasions.

Good job on the video, as boring as it sounds it had my attention the whole time. Guest: More common then you expect. Most engine failures are caused by something going into the engine.

pelosian you really have no idea about big jet operations which of course I do. Now if you are going to hit a bird you just turn the wheel away from the bird. Simple for guys like me BUT not for you, you a$$hole. As I said, I have had to do it on numerous occasions and it works fine so please go and make an a$$hole of yourself elsewhere. I have yet to have a bird strike on take off you ladyboy faggat as I employ this tried and tested technique. Now go and relax and suck pafc20's cock.

Good video, awesome pilot, however it should be renamed. The bird does not down the aircraft, the pilot recovered it safely back to the Airport.

Latest comment: First off it was a grey heron, not a crow, BIG difference, they can grow up to 3 stone and have a 6ft wingspan, secondly it didn't "Down" the aircraft as the video clearly shows, the boeing 757 is known as one of the most powerfull twin engine aircraft in the world for it's size, it has way more power than it needs, pilots love it, this landing was routine, but yes they were lucky that only one engine was affected.

Land a plane safely at an airport and nobody bats an eyelid, but crash it into the Hudson river scaring seven shades of shit out of your passengers and you're a hero. I can't help thinking that the prerequisite for hero status is not what it once was.

Omg jim bob, are you actually retarded. You think a 737 could dodge a bird that suddenly flies across the runway a second before it comes into view? You'd be lucky to manage that in a car at even 30mph. Well done at lying over the internet though.

Hey morons. The American plane suffered a double bird strike and lost both engines, not just one. Stupid foul-toothed Brits.
