US Air Pilot Tells Katie Couric About Heroic Crash Landing

Posted: Updated:
Audio tapes tell the tale of the "Miracle on the Hudson" as the pilot explains to an air traffic controller that the plane is "going to be in the Hudson."

The US Air flight lost both engines after hitting a flock of birds. The plane landed safely in the Hudson River and passengers escaped to the wings and were quickly taken ashore.

The first television interview with Captain Chesley Sullenberger will air on "60 Minutes" on CBS8 at 7 p.m. Sunday. "Sully" and his crew speak with Katie Couric about the crash landing.
