US Airways Plane Crashes Into Hudson River

A US Airways passenger plane bound from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, N.C., crashed into the frigid waters of the Hudson River shortly after takeoff Thursday afternoon, but all passengers appeared to survive.

US Airways, hit hard by high operating costs and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, filed for Chapter 11 protection Sunday, becoming the first major airline to declare bankruptcy since last fall.
