On Saturday there was a mid-air collision between a sight-seeing helicopter and a GA aircraft.
They were both flying below 1,100 feet, which means it was unmonitored airspace over the Hudson, which is why this crash occured. I am assuming that there will be new regulations that will be put in place in the aftermath of this crash.
Here are some snaps from a security camera facing the Hudson River that caught some of the collision.

Virgin America is turning 2 years old today! Congrats to them!
They fought hard and jumped through many obstacles to get into the skies, and now that they are; they have become really successful! They are one of the best domestic US airlines, and have revolutionized the way people travel...by actually making it entertaining and easy! Congrats to VX on turning two! :)
How are they celebrating? Virgin America CEO David Cush says in an email:

This week's video is about the importance of customer service in the airline industry. It is from Southwest (the leader in customer service!), and it talks about relationships between employees, customers and the company. It is a really great video!
Every once in a while, I will try and show you some bits and pieces from my airline collections. Today, I want to show you some of the pairs of kids' pilots and flight attendant wings I have collected over the years.
The top row is made up of airlines that are no longer with us anymore, the middle row has UA, WN and AA. The bottom row has FedEx and the logo of the Kansas City Downtown Airport.
