Captain Sully, Fox Business Reporting, Grace Baker discussed on ToddCast Podcast with Todd Starnes
You guys hear about this jet blue flight out of JFK. This is insane. Fox business reporting, Danielle, genevieve. Is the writer? Video surfaced online of JetBlue passengers begging crew members to let him off the airplane after it tried to land at JFK four times. So they had the pilot had to abort the landing four times at JFK. So they had to divert over to Newark airport, which is like not too terribly far away at all. It's just maybe a few minutes. And apparently they were left on the tarmac at Newark for about an hour, they were waiting for the weather to pass, the winds were gusting about 35 miles an hour. Now, I don't know if you've ever had the opportunity to be in an airplane. When they have to abort the landing, but it will put the fear of God in the atheist. I'm telling you, it is, it'll scare the living daylights out of you. Grace baker, we were coming in for a landing. At Laguardia. I've never experienced this. And that's a short, it's a short runway, so as soon as you land there slamming on the brakes, we were just about ready to touch down and boom, we shot up, I mean it was like a rocket going away. I thought I thought my life was over. I was going to end up in the water. Was there a lot of where people screaming and yelling? So I was, this was kind of funny. It was one of the smaller planes. I was in the front seat. And then the flight attendant was literally, you know, her seat is facing mine. So we're looking at each other, and her eyes were as big as saucers. And I looked down and she was just gripping her seat and I thought, sweet lord, we're done. Yeah, when the flight attendants freaking out, you're like, 'cause it's their job to stay calm. Oh yeah, nobody was calm on that airplane. Except the pile and I hope. I hope so. They got us down. But I felt bad for these people. So they were like freaking out. They were coming in from cancun. So, you know, they had to go through, you know, they had to go through the passport checkpoints on that. Oh yeah. So they were just terrified. I don't blame them one bit. Well, I'm glad you made it safely, Todd. One of the passengers said, people are getting sick back here. We gotta get off the plane. Oh my gosh. Aren't you glad you weren't in the back of that play? Take the lord. I did have to go on the remember captain Sully, landed the plane in the Hudson River. Everybody survived. So they decided, was this U.S. air? Continental or U.S. air rather decided they were going to let captain Sully finish the flight. Because it was a New York to Charlotte flight. So I was doing live hits with Fox News outside of Laguardia, and I thought, you know, it would be kind of fun to get to get a ticket on board that flight. I mean, all the dignitaries were there the mayor. Sure. Everybody was on board the flight. And so I thought, you know what? I'm going to do it. Hopped into the airport. They said, yeah, we can get you a seat. And I got the last seat on that flight. From New York to Charlotte, there's a great picture on Facebook of me and captain Sully. It was interesting because you know the plane got hit by birds. That's what happened. The birds, it was a bird strike. Took out all the engines. And it happened right after takeoff. So we're taking off and it was interesting because right about the point where they had the original bird strike, every single person on that plane was looking at the window to make sure there weren't any birds. Oh yeah, I bet the lines were not drawn. Everyone had their little window up. Everybody was ready. I had my I had my life preserver just in case in case. But we made it safely, and then I realized, holy crap, I got to get back to New York, so I had literally booked another flight and got right back to New York City. There's a lot of flying. I hope you had a good book. That was back when flying was fun. Yeah. Ish. Yes. It was fun, it was tolerable. It was tolerable. I think that's a fair case, because I'm not a big fan of the Charlotte airport. Aside from the rocket chairs. Yeah. You know, I recall, I've been through it once or twice. It's okay. It's all right. It's small. All right, look, folks. Pay attention again, manhunt underway in New York City. So let's be praying for all of the victims of the attack today. We don't know what we don't know what the motive was. We just know it was horrible. Also, be sure to pray for those first responders law enforcement out there searching for the bad guy.
