Landing In The Hudson River - 3D Reconstruction
On January 15, 2009, an Airbus A320-214 was successfully ditched in the Hudson River adjacent to midtown Manhattan six minutes after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport after being disabled by striking a flock of Canada geese during its initial climb out. The incident became known as the 'Miracle On The Hudson.'
We all saw this after it happened, but this video gives an idea of what captain Chesley Sullenburger and co-pilot Jay Skiles went through as it happened.
