Re: Plane Down in Hudson River

I was at school there  - "A" opened shortly before we moved there and Garretts was still Garretts - but up at the new site - all of the Long Sheds site was pretty much derelict.

Another one with a surprising answer: Counting just its mainland, which country extends the furthest north to south?

Still looking for an answer to this. The same country has another geographical record which is well known.

It's something Head (I know it's not John O'Groats which is I think a bit to the East) - I've just looked up the answer and I had the right idea

The plane's captain is certainly the master of understatement.  When he got on dry land he phoned his wife and said 'I've just had an accident, darling'.  Cool character.

Just what you need to be to handle such situations as if he'd gone to pieces or his mind was not clear the outcome could have been somewhat different, hope he gets promoted and given a couple of weeks off in recognition.

It was cooler than that: "There's been an incident"

I whiff the scent of conspiracy, you think there's something not quite right, artmo?

No not at all just being a bit picky Smiley
I wonder how long it will be though before we here the word 'conspiracy'?  Some of my American friends can't accept it was an accident.  Paranoia is second nature to the Americans. Wink

Re: Plane Down in Hudson River

Well when you've had stuff like JFK's assassination and organisations such as the CIA what can you expect.
Mind you, I wouldn't put such things beyond our own government.
As Ian Richardson's character, Frances Urquhart said in House of Cards "you might think that, but I could not possibly comment"
