The NTSB is attempting to remove the US Airways jet from the Hudson River, but the plane is now anchored in the ice. The jet is tied up to a seawall at Battery Park City at the southern tip of Manhattan about three miles downriver of the crash. More on the salvage effort and a photo gallery at Gothamist. JMG reader Ken points us to this video capturing the crash from security cameras on a Manhattan dock.
The plane’s pilot, Chesley Sullenberger, has been called by Dubya, offered the key to NYC by Bloomberg, and already has a Facebook fan group with over 50,000 members. Some are even calling for NY Gov. Paterson to appoint Sullenberger to Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat, despite Sullenberger’s residency in California.
