Here is a picture taken by citizen journalist Janis Krums, who was on a ferry on the Hudson River at the time the US Airways A320 crashed onto the water.

He captioned the image on Twitpic: “There’s a plane in the Hudson. I’m on the ferry going to pick up the people. Crazy.”

Speaking of citizen journalism, our own FlightBlogger posted an open thread in December about the Continental accident in Denver and observed the instant reaction of a passenger on the aircraft who was a Twitter user.

    Am I correct that this US Air crash isn’t the first on take off from La Guardia?

    We all know the pilot is a real hero, not only did he try and land the plain in the river he also landed it close to where people would be able to rescue them quickly, I also think their should be a big pat on the back from the quick thinking ferry captains, well done.
