Flight 1549 -- The New Crash Video

1/23/2009 2:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shocking new CCTV video just released shows the moment US Airways Flight 1549 hit the Hudson, the plane still skidding to a stop in the river.

US Air Crash: Click to watch
Almost immediately, passengers can be seen jumping from the aircraft into the water and onto the plane's wings -- the first rescue boat showed up three minutes later.

Thanks to the "heroic" maneuvering of Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, all 155 people aboard survived the crash.

I don't feel that its that big of a deal, but that crash was something that shouldn't be taken lightly.

I live in Anchorage, Alaska and work for Alaska Airlines and am a trained flight attendent.....in OUR training of course a large part is in case the plane lands in the ocean or sea... but what surprised me as I did not see it the other day was no one mentionmed the fact that HAD that plane sunk or started to sink with a plane load of passengers there IS such a thing as floater devices that actually strap under the belly of the plane and can actually lift it up to the surface....we trained for that too and trust me....THAT is a nightmare scenario.

AND what an incredible landing! ON FLIPPIN WATER! One little boo boo and this plane could easily have snapped like a twig! They are NOT designed to land on water needless to say so this pilot needs more than a flippin ticket to the FREE inaguration in my mind! Come-on America....give credit where credit is due.
US Airways if fabulous as they ONLY have seasoned pilots and thank God they did that day.

WOW....AMAZING! Those poor people who immediately jumped into the river were the ones who were intereviewed from their hospital bed. One guy said he was trying to swim to shore but realized he wouldn't make it because of the cold temperature of the water. One of them was the person who was given a shirt by one of the pilots to help keep him warm.

I somehow hope the pilots can read what everyone says about him.
He IS the man. A true hero.

TMZ, why is the word heroic in quotations? Do you disagree that the pilot was heroic? Just wondering...

Why would you call it the "Impact video" when there is no IMPACT in the VIDEO ? This was shot well after the impact. how about some TRUTHFUL reporting for a change?
