This incident has often been referred to as the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’. When the Airbus was ditched in New York’s Hudson River, many people could not believe what happened. What happened next was even more spectacular.
Overview of my creation, this is built to represent 30 seconds after landing. The boats are on their way to assist with the rescue.
Another front view of the creation. The water is completely SNOT.

This incident just goes to show that miracles do happen.
"We had a Miracle on 34th Street. I believe now we have had a Miracle on the Hudson."
David Paterson, New York State Governor.
Great job Mario Man!!! I work in the aviation industry and can honestly say I've lost more friends to airplane/helo crashes than I have car crashes. That day was def. a miracle, and Sully did a fantastic job that day. You can honestly say that piloting is and always will be his destiny.
