Hudson River Plane Crash

Yesterday a plane crashed into the Hudson River in New York. I've quickly produced this simulation of the short flight of aeroplane 1549 for the Google Earth Browser based on the real flight data.

I have produced two versions of the simulation, one with the New York 3D buildings turned off and one with the buildings turned on. The 3D version can seriously lag on slower computers.
