A pilot's-eye view of Flight 1549 [UPDATED]

The BBC commissioned a computer simulation of Captain Sullenberger's miracle "water landing" (always loved that FAA euphemism) of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River. It includes some harrowing views from the point of view of the pilot in the cockpit.

This would be one hell of a scenario to add to the next version of Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

Update: Somebody's done it. Well.
