Actual surveillance video of USAIR Flight 1549 setting down on the water. It’s not a crash. He lands with the nose up. This pilot – Captain Chelsey Sullenberger is absolutely amazing. The whole thing is amazing – especially how quickly it stops. No audio. The videos each show a different view and the last is an interview with his wife and daughters.
There was a cellphone video of the plane flying over the Bronx Zoo before it lands put it was removed for some reason.
Watch the extreme of right side of screen – almost out of the frame – at (1:18) a man slips and falls in and another guy immediately pulls him out. The longer version (in playlist) shows the three boats converging on the plane at 4, 6:30 & 7:30 minutes after a splash landing in the middle of the Hudson River.

A different angle. You can see the plane splash down in a controlled manner with the nose up. He flew that plane all the way down to the water. Genius.
Still another view that complements the one above. (0:20 – 0:40)
