Description: Come join us on a Hudson River cruise you'll never forget. Great views and even better times. Sailing from Kingston, NY, The Teal offers a one of a kind view of the Hudson River Valley that can only be seen while cruising the Hudson River on a Hudson River Boat Tour.

And we'll finally hear from him in the morning, via Matt Lauer. Can't wait to hear what he has to say.

Providence means there were also rescue teams near and actionable at that precious moment. AND the fact that there was no panic. Plus the fact that even though the crew never pulled the water-landing switch, the awesome landing pretty much turned it into a slowly sinking boat, instead of an integrity-challenged hull. But we're back to Sully, then.

Providence? I'd say having a veteran pilot steeped in emergency management at the plane's controls had more influence than any other factor. The man's resume is a mile long.
