Now that everyone has been rescued safely from Thursday's US Airways' crash into New York's Hudson river, the NTSB can start deconstructing the events of that afternoon. In addition to the black box and voice recorders being recovered, the agency also has the fortune of having part of the crash landing recorded on video, via both a Coast Guard camera and another security camera in a nearby building. CNN posted the latter video just this afternoon, which shows the aircraft skidding across the water with its nose in the air. Truly a magnificent job landing safely.
