Sullenberger's Amazing Landing

You’ve got to see this.
I don’t know how they did it, but this is a video, in real time and with cockpit voice recordings, of the path taken by US Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009. That’s the passenger plane that struck a flock of Canadian geese just minutes after it had left LaGuardia Airport, which resulted in an immediate and nearly complete loss of thrust from both engines. Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, a true hero, calmly and skillfully made a perfect emergency landing right in the Hudson River.
Astonishing!
