Flight 1549 Anniversary

Looking Back on Flight 1549 One year ago today, Flight 1549 made an emergency landing on the Hudson River with many Charlotteans on board. It's being called "the Miracle on the Hudson," and today we'll look back at the events of that day through the eyes of two of the passengers of Flight 1549. We'll also hear from the author of a new book called Brace for Impact, which compiles the experiences of 22 of the survivors. Guests Clay Presley - President of Carolina Pad, Passenger on Flight 1549 Beth McHugh - Business woman, Passenger on Flight 1549 Kevin Quirk - Co-Author, Brace for Impact: Miracle on the Hudson Survivors Share Their Stories of Near Death and Hope for New Life Since this is a pre-produced presentation, we won't be able to include your comments.
