US Airways Flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City on Jan. 15, 2009, headed to Charlotte, N.C.  Three minutes into the flight, the plane struck a flock of Canada geese which resulted in an immediate and complete loss of both engines.  At a mere 3,000 feet, the crew of the aircraft quickly determined they would be unable to reach any airfield so they turned to glide over the Hudson.  What happened in the next four minutes determined the fate of the 155 individuals on board.
