    Cactus Flight 1549 Accident Reconstruction (US Airways)

    Exosphere 3D has made several animations covering Cactus Flight 1549 and the bird strikes, plus landing on the Hudson.
    Dunno about you guys, but the videos and animations takes half a war to load here. (11 mbit conn.)

    A guy living in an apartment right across from the crash site, captured a lot of photos and videos during the recovery of the plane:

    Nice video. Thanks BB.

    Looks like they did as much damage to the aircraft lifting it out of the water as the actual ditching did.
