This video animation created by Exosphere3d stunningly portrays the flight path of US Airways 1549 that landed in the Hudson River last January. The company used satellite imagery, geospatial data and 3D models of the US Airways Airbus plus audio from tower communications to graphically re-enact the incident labeled "Miracle on the Hudson." The series of animations was published in the Huffington Post.
