That would be the first water landing of a passenger plane in history.

You know those laminated instructions that show what to do in the case of a water landing? Life-jackets and life-rafts?

Well, in 99% of cases, if a passenger plane attempted to land on water, the engines would carthwheel the plane over during its high speed impact, submerging it.

I guess that in this case the plane was low enough that the landing was at a very low speed and tip-over didn't occur.

Officials believe the plane may have collided with a flock of geese.
Rescue boats plucked passengers, who could be seen wearing life jackets, from the wings of the plane.

some sick hidden joke by the editor in there i think .. bet they would of worded it different if the outcome was worse ..
