Within seconds they had created history.

Not quite Air Crash Investigations, Seven has a documentary on the plane that crash landed into New York’s Hudson River when a flock of birds struck the engine of Flight 1549 in January.

The UK doco tells a minute-by-minute story of that day through first-hand testimonies of those who were there, including passengers, eyewitnesses and rescuers.

Miracle of the Hudson Plane Crash airs 7:30pm Monday August 3rd on Seven.

A preview is available on YouTube.

    Fantastic show. I am a flight attendant…. and this is definately a miracle! The chances of landing on water and surviving that are next to none!

    On the ball Sharpy :)

    This could be interesting, but the padded out hour-long show may lose me as a viewer.

    A minute by minute story? Does that mean the doco only lasts for 9 minutes?

    There were promos for this on 7HD for months. I wondered when it would appear.
