A US Airways Airbus A-320 lies a few feet offshore in the Hudson River after making an emergency landing upriver on Jan. 15, 2009. The tide carried the jetliner downstream near the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. All 155 passengers and crew survived. FDNY marine units were on scene within five minutes.
