It was a year ago when the "Miracle on the Hudson" happened. US Airways Flight 1549 out of New York was bound for Charlotte when it struck birds and prompted a crash-landing on the Hudson river. All 155 passengers and the flight crew survived. One of them was Jim Whitaker. He came to WFAE's studios to share his story.
