Pretty disconcerting pic (until you read the remarks!). Never seen that much blood on a wing before!

Wow! What a great job by the Pilots! Earned every cent of their paycheck for their whole lives with just that one emergency landing! Cheers to the Captain and First Officer! WOW!

If the they were bird strikes, why is the gear bent like that?

Wow!! Very impressive!
BTW, the date is wrong... it should be November, right?

What other option is there except "as soon as possible" if you lost both engines? ; ) Rare photo nonetheless.

This photo does make me wonder...how did the engines lose power?
I do know "bird strikes" would be the most obvious answer, but it appears that the no. 1 engine has no bent, shattered or missing fan blades, this may be the case on the no. 2 engine, and how did the gear get bent like that?

Lets see....engine failure X 2, + hard landing = damaged landing gear. I hate stupid questions. Great photo opportunity, nice shot.

Pilots may spend a lot of time dozing off in the cockpit and watching the autopilot do its job, but it's when something like thic happens that they earn every single penny for all that time - and even that is not enough. And as for the bend landing gear? Every landing is good if all people walk away away from it. Congrats.

Dude, losing both engines at 200'...you're going to come dowin with a bump! Hence the bent landing gear. Super job in my opinion and a great photo to document it!
