FLIGHT 1549 CRASH INTO HUDSON / SURVEILLANCE (2009)
In what New York's governor called "a miracle on the Hudson," a veteran pilot glided a US Airways jetliner with two dead engines onto the river's frigid surface so smoothly Thursday that all of the 150 passengers and five crew members escaped serious injury. Some didn't even get their feet wet. One day after pilot Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger, 58, heroically guided the disabled U.S. Airways Flight 1549 jetliner to safety in the portion of the Hudson River off Midtown Manhattan, investigators on Friday brought in a giant crane and a barge to help pull the plane from the waterway. Federal investigators said one of the engines on the jetliner is missing. Police divers are using sonar to help find the engine, while crews are trying to pull the aircraft from the river. In a photograph of the plane as it approached the river, it appears to have both of its engines.
