Plane down in the Hudson?

1/11/2008:

Overheard the scanner now: Reports that a plane had gone down in the Hudson River (on the NY side, by Chelsea Piers.)

Apparently NY officials couldn’t find anything, and requested that Hoboken PD check our side of the river.

Anyone living in the high-rises along the river see anything?

There was a reported plane down last night around 2AM. When harbor got on scene at Chelsea pier, they spoke with an witness who further reported of a plane going down I/A/O W 20 street into the Hudson. FDNY and NYPD searched the area, and also requested units on the other side of the Hudson (JC/Hoboken etc) check their waterfront to see if there are any additional reports of a plane down. (note, this didn’t actually happen until about 15-20 minutes in to the incident). Nothing further was found, and everyone went back in service…

They gave it more credit because they had a witness report saying that they saw it as opposed to giving it potentially less attention with the standard “1 call only on this”

There you have it.

If something blew up many hours ago, don’t you think we all would have heard about it by now?

Heard weird loud sound as well. Didn’t sound like thunder to me either; I thought it was a transformer blowing??? I heard there would be rain, but a thunder storm???? very surprised at that.

Don’t think you would hear a small plane hitting the water that far away…thunder on the other hand you would hear.

I heard thunder around 4:30. . . and again around 7:15 this morning.

I’m too far back from the river to have heard/seen anything at 2am when this supposedly happened.
