1988 and 2009: The Hudson River and Kowloon Bay
There are some eerie similarities between yesterday’s US Airways plane crash and a Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) plane crash on August 31, 1988 in Hong Kong (en route from Guangzhou). Although the circumstances of the two crashes are different (e.g. the 1988 CAAC plane crash happened upon landing; there were 7 casualties, etc.), the visual images of the actual crash in this video are eerily similar. Looking at the CNN video transports me back into history: mute the sound and it is as if I were looking at Kowloon Bay rather than the Hudson River. Regardless of similarities and/or differences, both are miracles.
