Pilots say that a good landing is one where you and most of the passengers walk away unscathed, and a great one is one where you can use the plane again afterwards. This is merely a good landing.
Initial reports are that they sucked in a flock of geese.

In re: Rants and Revelations: Great timing, assholes
Just got an email from Site Management. It appears this wasn’t a fire drill, it was a short circuit in a “pull-station” on the roof caused by the high winds and wet snow. Because, as everybody knows, we never get wet weather in Rochester.
Today, the wind was gusting up to 55 knots, and we’re getting the first snow of the season. So what does Kodak do? They have a fucking fire drill. And because it’s fucking cold and wet and blowing, it takes forever to empty the building, so therefore those of us who got out reasonably early have to stand around freezing our asses off.
One major reason why it was taking so long to empty the building was some fat ass dipwad cockbite was standing in front of one of the two double doors at our exit, and wouldn’t move out of the way even when I tried to push the door open. And if you’ve ever tried to push a 400 pound lump of congealed grease who is actively pushing back, you’ll know it’s not easy.
