Flight 1549 Security Tape Released
A newly released security camera tape shows the emergency ditching of US Airways Flight 1549 in all its stunning drama — from seconds after the jetliner splashed into the frigid water until well after the last of the passengers and crew members were rescued. The tape, made available to news media on Thursday by the Consolidated Edison utility, runs 47 minutes and 5 seconds — by far the longest video account of what Gov. David Paterson termed “a miracle on the Hudson.”
“The Con Ed tape, which company spokesman Chris Olert said was recorded by a security camera at a steam plant on Manhattan’s west side, begins with the plane hitting the river and skidding to a halt in a spray of water and steam at 3:25 p.m.”
The release of this 47 minute security tape begs the question: Why weren’t all the security tapes that were available – and there were several – showing the alleged Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, but confiscated within minutes by the FBI, not released?
The answer is obvious:
Those security videos would reveal something the American government does not want us to know.
