If you thought that the pilot who landed US Airways flight 1549 on the Hudson River was cool, you haven't seen this simulation with the real FAA voice recordings. I'm absolutely stunned by his nerves.
We've seen plenty of photos of the plane that landed in the Hudson, but none quite like these, which were taken by the crane operator who lifted the downed craft from the chilly waters.
Here's a time-lapse video of the whole rescue operation of US Airways Airbus A320, down from the bottom of the Hudson river. I still can't believe the pilot was able to pull that one off.
The BBC commissioned a flight-sim reproduction of the last week's near-miraculous US Airways incident. So, in case you were wondering, this is what it looks like to pilot a commercial jet onto a river.
Have you ever wondered if an airplane's inflatable rafts actually work? I always do. The answer is YES. This image of the US Airways' Airbus 320 that just water-landed on the Hudson is just amazing.
