Air Traffic Control tape of Hudson River plane

Listen to the concise professionalism of the air traffic controller. He's moving through a normal day; suddenly a plane is in trouble; he handles it as well as it could be handled within a limited time frame. He has only seconds to effect proper decisions. Impressive.

I find this, and video of the boats rushing to rescue the plane, quite moving. The professionalism, excellence, and courage of all participants, as they rise to the moment, is moving.
