Landing in the Hudson

Sent to me my my email buddy, Dewey who always comes up with the very best, most interesting stuff:

"It's amazing what computer graphic artists can create. Attached is a re-creation of the US Air flight that made an emergency landing in the Hudson River, takeoff to touchdown with ATC radio transmissions. This gives you a perspective of how quickly the US air crew had to react to realize the outcome they experienced.

Note the tail of smoke which indicates the pilots began making very quick decisions long before they landed in the Hudson--when you realize they were supposed to fly
over the Hudson not down the Hudson."
