Remember Flight 1549, January 15, 2009

Reconstruction of the Flight
I’m sure you remember this famous flight often referred to as the miracle on the Hudson. The following video is a 3D reconstruction the flight along with all the audio from the tower and Pilot Sullenberger. It starts with the takeoff from the airport, shows the impact of the birds, and ends with the landing in the Hudson River. I think you’ll like this video.

And good intentions are not worth a pinch of salt.

Joke of the Day

The photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane.

"It will be waiting for you at the airport!" he was assured by his editor.

As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway. He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, "Let's go! Let's go!" The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air.

"Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "and make three or four low level passes." "Why?" asked the pilot. "Because I'm going to take pictures! I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures!" said the photographer with great exasperation.

After a long pause the pilot said, "You mean you're not the instructor?"
