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.
The plane comes down into the water right around the two minute mark and it's very grainy. But that blur of silver does give you a sense of just how smoothly Chelsey B. Sullenberger III was able to touch down. The rest shows the first minutes of passengers exiting onto the wings and the first ferry boat arriving to their rescue. Given that the US Airways flight went down in one of the most densely populated places on earth under virtual police-state surveillance, we actually expected more footage than this to come out. [Update As commenter Claire Buoyant points out, the BBC has clips from two other angles.] Still, this will do for now.
Fortunately, it appears everyone on board escaped the US Airways plane before it sank into the Hudson River. In the survivors' first interviews, they tell their harrowing tales.
