Helicopter Plane Crash not the First for Liberty Helicopters

When researching this story about a Helicopter and plane coliding in mid-air, I was confused for a few minutes as one report said everyone survived, while the other report said everyone died. Then it became obvious, this mornings' mid air collision

bewteen a Helicopter operated by Liberty Helicopter Tours and a Piper PA-32 owned by LCA Partnerships of Fort Washington, Pa., was not the first crash for Liberty Helicopters.

The earlier crash was a few years ago on Saturday, July 7th 2007 when a Helicopter operated by the Helicopter tour company made an emergency landing in the Hudson River. As I mentioned, everyone in that accident survived relitavely unscathed.

This, however, was not the case with the Mid-air colission over the Hudson today. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg referred to todays' Helicopter / plane crash in the Hudson River as "not survivable." Bloomberg added "This is not going to have a happy ending, this has changed from a rescue to a recovery mission."

Two bodies have been recovered from the helicopter crash scene and Divers are currently searching the Hudson River, near West 14th Street in Manhattan, for more bodies as well as debris from the Helicopter / plane crash which may have left all 9 passengers and crew dead.
