Video of US Airways Hudson River Crash

direct link

A US Coast Guard camera caught it all. The crash is around the two minute mark. By four minutes, the ferry boat is almost there. The camera has to keep following the action as the plane drifts downstream.

And yeah, that plane comes to a rather abrupt stop - you can certainly see how someone broke a their legs. It's a wonder more people weren't hurt. The flight crew had the passengers out on the wings and the front slide in a hurry, too. Impressive all around.
