"We're gonna be in the Hudson"

Remember flight 1549? The one that ditched into the Hudson River in New York after a bird strike? Now there's a real time 3D re-enactment video of how that whole thing went down. All I can say is that pilot has some skills.

He was very much into a stall situation when he hit that water. What I didn't realize was that it seems they may have gotten one of the engines re-started just before they ditched, but it was too badly damaged to give them any power. One can only imagine how things would have been different if there was no river.
