    Hudson River Airliner Salvage

    There are a great series of photos by Stephen Mallon of the aftermath of the Hudson River plane crash here: http://www.stephenmallon.com/index-s...0FLIGHT%201549

    Apparently US Airways and our favorite insurer AIG initially prevented use of these images: http://theonlinephotographer.typepad...ck-online.html

    What is also interesting is his "Statement" ... all the stuff that is being recycled. Love the bit where steel salvaged from the World Trade Center was used to make the U.S.S. New York.

    I love beautiful work that is born of purpose.

    Yea they actually used quite a bit of the steel to build that ship. Nice tribute to our fallen citizens.

    Be nice if they made 155 symbols of life in some form out of that plane and give it to each passenger from that flight. No birds please

    AIG is the largest purchaser of commercial aircraft in the world. I think they buy upwards of a couple hundred commercial jumbo jets every year. AIG owns the leasing company that buys the planes and leases them to the commercial airlines. I forget the name of the leasing company but AIG threw $-billions at it from the fed bailout money it received as a way to use fed tax dollars to keep Airbus and Boeing going without a direct bailout. And Airbus isn't even an American company -- it's Euro!!!

    That specific plane was not owned by AIG, it was owned by Wells Fargo Bank, and leased to US Airways, but the lease was insured by AIG.

    He's a good photographer!

    I love the image shot over the wing towards the shore, a parody of the images shot through the window mid flight that we are so used to.

    Vision, it's all vision.
