Fl 1549 crash landing video

The first one I’ve found was posted just after 9 tonight as part of an AP story which linked to the video it attributed to CNN.

It’s brief and was taken by a surveillance camera.

Scroll down in the print story here and you’ll come to a photo with the video activators.

You’ll see most of the landing at about 1:20 into the video.

A building blocks the final second or two of the landing.

What I believe is a second video picks up on the other side of the building and you see the plane floating in the water.

If any of you locate a better and/or more detailed video of the landing or the first minutes following it, please give me a heads up.

BTW – The story with the video builds the case that birds disabled the engines.

What will PETA say?

Sadly, you ignore the reason why these poor birds were in NY in the first place, instead of down south, where they ordinarily migrate in the winter: global warming, er, I mean climate change.

So, as you can see, there is far more to this story than just needless cruelty to birds (or, as PETA might call them, air kittens). Like most everything else these days, it is really about man made climate change.
