Watching live television coverage of the US Airways crash in the Hudson River today, I'm reminded of Air Florida Flight 90, which crashed into the Potomac River on January 13, 1982. The Air Florida plane hit the 14th Street Bridge in Washington, D.C., killing 78 people, including four motorists. I'll never forget Lenny Skutnik rushing into the freezing water to rescue a passenger. The flight cockpit recorder audio is here.
