Online Game Recreates Heroic Hudson River Plane Landing
Naturally, you've heard the story of US Air Flight 1549, which was successfully crash-landed into the Hudson by a dedicated and amazing crew. That crew got its 15 minutes of fame at the opening ceremonies before Super Bowl XLIII, but now you can play the hero yourself in a free, Web-based Flash game that lets you re-create the challenging landing.
'Hero on the Hudson' was created quickly by Orb Games Limited, supposedly to "remind everyone about this miraculous event," but we're also thinking that selling a few more advertisements was also on people's minds. Either way, the 1.5 million plays the game has received in its first week is serious Internet traffic.
The game was deliberately made to be ridiculously simple (it actually took us three tries to crash), but if you still want to give it a shot, just start clicking above! [From: Gadling and Propeller]
