US Airways Flight 1549 Flight Video

Amazing video re-construction

Remember the US Airways Flight 1549 “Miracle Splash Landing” in the Hudson River back in January?

Well software company Exosphere3D recently created a new high-quality 3D rendered animation of the flight – incorporating all available data.

“This 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.”

I cannot catch a break today. A plane has apparently gone down in the Hudson (closer to NYC).

North Hudson is now in Weehawken assisting… I was cooking lunch when I overheard this. It also appears NY Waterway Ferries are assisting with rescue efforts.

Discuss.

I don’t get it, what was the point of that video?

His website says he bills $200 per hour for this sort of stuff, I wonder who would bother.

Yeah, I was standing at the Colgate Clock and looking over at the pier at Colony Road and was wondering if they had it indoors somewhere. From where I was standing, I saw no plane outdoors.
