Miracle at the Hudson



Along these waters, a miracle occured around three weeks ago when the U.S. Airways Flight 1549, a commercial passenger flight headed for North Carolina, made it to the (North) Hudson River, after losing thrust in both engines when it struck a flight of birds while on climb out. All 155 persons on board were alive. Wow.

Yesterday, the cockpit tapes were released and it revealed how calm the pilot, Captain "Sully" Sullenberger was amidst the crisis. Amazing.
