More on Flight 1549

Both engines are still missing.

"A guy named Chesley..."

Surveillance video catches the actual water landing:



Watch the left side of the frame at 2:00 or so - you can see the actual landing.

Great video from Newsday.com

Tons of resources here too:

Graphics and stats on plane-bird collisions

Superb photos at FLICKR - this one in particular caught my eye

Damn lucky that collision happened close the city, if they'd been a bit further along their course, God knows where they might have had to come down.

Josh Marshall also has some interesting history about forced landings on water.

The Times has a great interactive graphic.
