This is a must watch computer recreation of the Sullenberger Hudson crash Flight Simulation;
We all know who Sully is. I want to know who that Departure Controller is? He kept his cool through the whole incident, even while he continued to control the other planes he had in the air. Outstanding work under pressure.
From Exosphere 3D:
This astonishing animation is based on all currently available data concerning the US Airways Flight 1549 crash (Cactus 1549).
Satellite imagery, elevation models and robust GIS mapping methods are utilized to create a vegetation model, terrain model and ground clutter (3D buildings). Of all available audio tracks, only two are used, La Guardia Tower and New York TRACON Departure controller position. Radar data as well as the onboard Flight Data Recorder are utilized in constructing the flightpath of the aircraft
