Coast Guard Video of Hudson River Plane Crash (USAIR 1549)

Posted on 20. Jan, 2009 by in Featured

I thought this video was interesting because you can see the effect the current had on the aircraft in the water. No doubt it made the rescue by the Coast Guard and other vessels significantly harder. As a former Naval Aviator I can appreciate the professionalism of the first responders, especially of the fact no one was hurt or lost during the rescue. Water rescues are never easy, even when a trained flight crew is being recued.
