Dead stick into the Hudson river.

I used to live on the Jersey side of the Hudson. Its pretty big, actually. But I wouldn't want to try to ditch an airliner into it.

This video on CNN shows the actual ditching, as captured by some security cameras.
(there's some audio too, of 911 calls, a couple of people astonished at what they have just seen).

The pilot, it turns out, is a safety expert. The Smoking Gun has managed to come up with his resume.

As the Smoking Gun said in its email: "All hail "Sully" Sullenberger, the hero of Flight 1549."
