Pictures showing retrieval of US Air flight 1549 from Hudson River

Wow! I mean… just… Wow!  Passenger jets are pretty impressive machines all on their own. To see one being just picked up from UNDER the water like this is astonishing to me.

I checked out some youtube videos of the recovery operations but none seemed to quite capture the moment like these pictures.

    So, any estimates on when this plane will be back in service?

    I hear they’ll be selling it to Aeroflot who will then charge extra to fly on it since you won’t have problems with the air being too dry…
