Coast Guard video of US Air Flight 1549 landing and rescue

Posted By on January 17, 2009

A new USCGImagery video shows how impressive the landing (about 2 minutes into the clip), exit and immediate rescue was from the US Airways Flight 1549. The plane impacted the Hudson River at about 3:31 PM and within a few second passengers were out on the wings and emergency slides. As the camera zooms in it is easy to see the emergency exit and the the first ferry showing up at 3:35 — that’s only 2 minutes after the water landing. As I said in the previous post, miraculous and incredible.
