Audio of the communications between air traffic controllers and the pilot of Flight 1549, the airplane that landed in the Hudson river last month, have been made available. They're banal. In a creepy way.

Well, maybe "creepy" isn't the right word. But there's something both comforting and unsettling about how calm all involved seemed to be, even as Captain Chesley Sullenberger said that the aircraft couldn't make it to an airport runway. I guess maybe there just wasn't time to panic. Though something tells me that if I'd been up there, I'd have made the time.
