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.”

170 people on board!!
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.
