I have worked with the Captain that was flying. He is a check airman. Also there was another Check airman captain (that I have also flown with) in the cabin as well as another FO.

From the news reports the only injuries were from passengers jumping off the wing onto the tarmac after they had successfully evacuated out of the exit row doors. So this show how much attention I pay to the safety briefing but is there no way down off the wing?! I thought on some planes there is a slide off the wing. How high off the ground is the wing exactly? Seems like a tricky evac for older folks, kids, etc.

I guess that only works if the plane is floating in water.

Video of passenger interviews

Many of the passengers were flying to Kansas City for a Skills USA convention.

Nothing listed yet in the NTSB database for June. Should be some entry by the end of the week.

After this type of event, would the passengers be compensated in any way?
