    Very cool. Puts a lot more into perspective watching their actions in combination with the audio. Tower's asking stupid questions as they are seconds from ditching. Heard recently that the ferry boats actually practice for this to occur, when they saw the plane splash down, they simply went to it doing what they had been practicing.

    Simply incredible.

    the fist thing they teach you in flight school, is that if you lose the power on take-0ff you CANNOT get back to the field you just left !!!
