yes, it's totally possible for a flock of geese to take down a plane. when training as a pilot, my CFI taught me to respect a flock of ducks as much as i would avoid other small aircraft. - michael silverton
From CNN: A passanger on the phone says that everybody managed to get out. - Tapio Kulmala

"Brace for impact." Imagine hearing that from the flight attendant. - Bill Koslosky, MD
Pilots should get heroes' welcome. Nobody can avoid such a random thing as a bird strike. Textbook emergency landing, everyone safe. Well done!!! - michael silverton

Social media beats main stream media again! - Jeff P. Henderson
Acually brace is what the pilot would say! - Brandy Lea
@Brandy Lea: one of the passengers confirmed that it was the pilot who said, "brace for impact." I was going by an earlier report by MSNBC that the flight attendants are trained to do a short emergency procedure explanation before warning the passengers in this manner. Thanks for correcting. - Bill Koslosky, MD
