Dale Amon at Samizdata - yesterday's unplanned water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 was not a tragedy due to one man, the pilot who put it down intact on the Hudson, and ensured that all the passengers got out, Captain C.B. "Sully" Sullenberger. Thank you, Sully.

CNN has lots of video here.

Posted on b1ff.org, this vimeo video, embedded below. The plane comes in from the left at shortly over 2 minutes, then a boat comes from the right a couple of minutes later. [cryptome]
