The more you read about the story of the US Airways plane ditching into the Hudson River next to Manhattan, the more amazing it gets. The pilot did an amazing job and now the video and images are appearing online, which means you can really see the story rather than read about it.

Rather than make me afraid to fly, the skill of the pilot and the structural strength of the airplane mean I feel less scared to fly – though I love flying and rarely if ever think about crashing.
