I happened to glance up from my computer. The view is of the river, facing north.
I noticed something different - a too large plane coming south, low, and dropping.
My first thought was, "Another 9/11?"
By the time that I reached the window, they had landed on the water.
There have been many words already said about all of the things that the pilot and crew did right. They made good decisions. They exhibited good physical skills. Certainly they are heros.
I would use a word of even higher praise however.
They were professional!
