Movies And Specials: 'Miracle Landing On The Hudson'

Synopsis: Few could forget the incredible television images of a U.S. Airways plane floating in New York’s Hudson River, downed by a flock of Canadian geese more than five years ago. On the other hand, those who were on board will forever wish they could erase the memory. Though the quick thinking and bravery of the pilot has been lauded the world over, this summer the National Geographic Channel will present a new side of the story with "Miracle Landing On The Hudson," a two-hour movie event told entirely through the first-hand stories of the passengers on board.

The film recounts the horrifying memories of many of the 150 passengers for whom survival was an unexpected twist. Free of narration, and packed with incredible and dramatic re-creations of the crash from inside and outside the vessel, "Miracle Landing On The Hudson" is an edge-of-your-seat thriller made all the more gripping by the emotional tales of the passengers on board.
