to crash into a lake in this state. I think they're maybe 5 in the whole state. It's like crashing into the side of a mountain in Florida.

5. I'd say the opposite. Finding a water landing in New Mexico would be a trick.
Otherwise it high impact landing on rocks. I'll take a water landing over jagged boulders anytime.

6. If they were flying through that storm yesterday
They probably didn't have a hell of a lot of choice where they landed.
