Within three minutes of takeoff from New York City's LaGuardia Airport on January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 struck a flock of geese causing the aircraft to lose all engine power. Pilots Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles glided the plane down into the Hudson River, where all 155 passengers on board were rescued by nearby boats. Passenger Beth McHugh recounts her experience on flight 1549, known as the Miracle on the Hudson.
