This past weekend a Ural Airlines Airbus A321 landed in a field after a double bird strike drawing comparisons to the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ US Airways flight 1549 ten years earlier.
Captain ‘Sully’ Sullenberger became an American hero as the captain of that US Airways flight, and Tom Hanks played him wonderfully on the big screen. Now he’s being ‘honored’ in a different way.
Since one difference between the Ural Airlines flight and what happened to US Airways 1549 is that Captain Sullenberger’s plane went in the drink, the new Flights Restaurant at the shops at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas has a Miracle on the Hudson cocktail complete with Airbus narrowbody, and I’m not even sure what to say other than that there’s no way anyone believes that the water in the Hudson is blue.

It’s been suggested that this might go well with a medium rare Sullen-burger.
What do you think, is this clever and in good fun or really poor taste?
