3D Reconstruction, of Flight 1549 Hudson River Ditching

Posted by Drew Z.:
From time to time we find some very cool videos on YouTube and we want to share them with you. About one year ago on January 15, 2009 US Airways Flight 1549 also known as the Miracle on the Hudson was successfully ditched in the Hudson River by captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (a graduate from the Unites States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs) six minutes after departing from LaGuardia Airport. The plane had struck a flock of Canada Geese which resulted in an immediate and nearly complete loss of thrust from both engines. As you know all 155 passengers were saved.
If you would like to see the complete story click here and you will be taken to its Wikipedia page.
Janis Krums from Sarasota, Fla. posted the first photo on Twitter from his iPhone, if you would like to see that photo please click here.
Here is the cool YouTube video. It is a 3D reconstruction, of flight 1549 Hudson River ditching on Jan 15, 2009. The video goes for 7:22. The flight takes off 1:25 into the video and ends when the plane lands in the Hudson. The producers of this film did a great job of making it seem like you were there. We think you will find this video entertaining, educational, and sense of being part of history. Take a look and we think you will like it.
