We all know approximately what happened when USAirways flight # 1549 had to make an emergency landing on the Hudson on January 16, 2009. Intellectually I knew what a hero that pilot was; flying above New York City with both engines out, he not only managed to avoid crash landing into one of the most densely populated areas of the United States, but he did it without causing any serious injuries among his passengers.

It’s one thing to know this intellectually; it’s quite another to see it. This is a very well-done simulation in a third party view of exactly what happened and how amazingly the pilot did his job.
