Birds from a flock of Canada geese were sucked into the engines, destroying them and resulting in loss of all engine power. The pilots, Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles,landed the aircraft safely by ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on the aircraft were rescued in what became known as 'The Miracle on the Hudson'.
