US Airways Flight 1549 animation

Tonight's emergency landing animation - an animation of US Airways Flight 1549's Jan 19, 2009 ditching in the Hudson River:

From the video's description:
This animation is based on all currently available data concerning the US Airways Flight 1549 crash (Cactus 1549). Satellite imagery, elevation models and robust GIS mapping methods are utilized to create a vegetation model, terrain model and ground clutter (3D buildings). Of all available audio tracks, only two are used, La Guardia Tower and New York TRACON Departure controller position. Radar data as well as the onboard Flight Data Recorder are utilized in constructing the flightpath of the aircraft.
