security camera recordings of the US Airways Hudson River ditch

Recommended Posts

Ive gotta admit that is pretty skillful. If the wings wernt perfectly level and one hit the water before the other then the results would have been far worse. Anyone who doesnt think this was a very remarkable piece of flying needs their head checked afta watching this.

I've never seen an airliner that didn't dip just slightly on one side when ditching. Even if one engine had hit the water first it could've cartwheeled.


It really was amazing flying with a healthy dose of good luck!
