    Any landing that you can swim away from, I guess.

    Do these reporters even think about what they are going to say before they open their mouths?

    Notice the news angle "Is it legal to land a plane on the river?"

    I was kinda amazed they didn't go with the "think of the reckless behavior extreme safety hazard to the children and fish" doom and gloom angle...

    You have to ask? Of course, the answer is "No, they do not." But, even then, if they did they'd still get it wrong.

    As I’ve said before, when you are in a rush to document the first draft of history, accuracy takes a back seat. It’s always been that way with the media.

    Technically, it was the American River. The confluence where it joins the Sacramento river is a few miles to the west.
