Surveillance video from New York shows the jet splash down into the Hudson River.
Here's the New York Times link to the Coast Guard video of the crash on the Hudson River. In addition to the fact that it was an amazing landing, watch how quickly the folks open the door and get onto the wing, especially on the right hand side of the aircraft. While all this was going on, Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III was walking the length of the plane -- twice -- to make sure everyone got out.
Now that's a true hero. So often people are declared heros when they're just doing their job, and yes, this guy was just doing his job, but oh my what a job he did!
And pretty damn quickly, the t-shirts were out there, proclaiming his "Mad Skills" and "Sully for Secretary of Transportation".
