Hudson jet communications released


The air traffic control communications between LaGuardia airport and the US Airways flight which crash landed into New York's Hudson river after a bird strike have been released.

The recording begins as Captain Chesley B "Sully" Sullenberger reports the loss of power from both the plane's engines and seeks an airport to land in before deciding on an emergency landing in the Hudson as his best chance of getting the plane down safely.
