Flight 1549 Audio Tapes Released

Controller: “Cactus 1549 turn right 2-8-0. You can land runway 1 at Teterboro.”
Pilot: “We can’t do it.”
Controller: “Ok. Which runway would you like at Teterboro?”
Pilot: “We’re going to be in the Hudson.”

(Ok, so the controller’s inflection didn’t really warrant the italicized “would” but wouldn’t it have been great if he got all queeny and was like, “Jesus, honey, beggars can’t be choosers, m’kay!?”)

Thanks for the heads-up, Towleroad.
