Hudson plane pilot recording


The communication between air traffic control and the US Airways flight which landed in New York's Hudson river after a bird strike has 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.

The video shows a computer simulation of the flight re-created by a software firm Just Flight.
