US Airways Flight 1549 Passenger Interview About Hudson River Landing

Fred Beretta, a private pilot and a passenger on the US Airways flight that landed in the Hudson river, speaks about the ordeal.

Beretta says the pilot, Chesley Sullenberger, warned passengers to 'brace for impact' but he knew they were going into the Hudson and believed there was a "good chance I was going to die."

All aboard the plane survived the water landing in New York's frigid Hudson River, after the jetliner with 155 people aboard lost power in both engines just minutes after taking off from LaGuardia Airport.
