Maasha Allaah,

If you will believe me farxad baan la ooyey.. Can you imagine that being you? I mean being one of the passengers? Allaah SWT gave the pilot the caution, the know how, the calmness, the decisiveness and the courage to land the plane in a very short time safely... Maasha Allaah, Allaah made him save 150 people.

Scary! Very glad there was no fatalities.

It friggin scared me when I saw the news last night, (gulp) specially as US Airways was lately my preferred airline for travel :shock:

Who would have thought a little bird can bring down a huge plane? I thought they nowadays design their engines to withstand a bird strike? I could swear I watched that in an episode of Modern Marvels.
