Five years ago today, a huge airliner dropped out of the sky and skidded to a stop on top of New York's Hudson River.
I watched, transfixed, breathless.
If the skills of Pilot Chesley Sullenberger were just the result of years of training and solid character, the result of that fateful landing was still a miracle - from my point of view - because I still can't believe a plane can fly - and this one not only flew - it floated!
