FARK had a drinking game going for everytime the phrase "bird strike" was used. I quit reading after the posts became incoherent.

Thread's gone a bit off it's own topic, I just posted a thread from a report that the engines aren't on the plane.

They're gonna be hard to find if they look for them in the Hudson Bay.

Maybe NBC will send a remote crew.

Faux would but they are in mourning and all sad and puffy eyed.

That is only if the event was a bird strike. If the engines didn't have the thrust bearing retainers installed properly, at full load and about a thirty degree up angle, those babies may be in Hudson Bay.
