Word … He died. Divers found his body in the Hudson River, close to the New Bergen Shoreline.

Aviation is having a bad time… That makes 5 plane crashes that made headlines this year.

That’s actually not even close to the actual number. It’s more like 20.

I actually saw the p-47 moments before it crashed

My condolences to him. Hope he rest in peace

I wonder if there must have been an issue with control-continuity. Those P-47’s have so much wing-area, I would imagine it to be difficult to perform anything other than a “controlled” landing.
Based on the quick video I’ve seen, It didn’t look to be too hard of an impact; the aircraft didn’t appear to breakup.

We’ll see what NTSB has to say about it…

I take back my previous pun…god, I feel terrible now. Poor guy.

This is so sad… Hopefully he will rest in peace

Did anyone survive

No, the pilot perished… RIP to him for he has died whilst doing something he loves (I assume)
