Video of plane landing in Hudson River


Second video is what you want to see: beginning of landing. Incredibly smooth. Pilot brilliant.

First video shows end of landing and aftermath. Plane in water at 2:00. Boat pulls alongside wing of people at 6:00. Second boat pulls alongside opposite wing of people at 8:00.

Oddly, though I know all people survive, when I see the second boat I start getting a bit teary eyed. The second boat means everyone will survive. The skill and excellence of the boat pilots is moving. I find myself rooting for the boats to get there, and to get properly in position.
