Hello, everyone. This is Maggie Rodriguez filling in for Katie.
For the 155 people on board U.S. Airways flight 1549 yesterday, their survival is nothing short of miraculous. As those passengers return home after the scare of a lifetime, federal investigators are examining the jetliner that made an emergency landing in the Hudson River. One thing that could complicate the investigation: both engines are missing. Bob Orr will have the very latest on this story.
We'll also share the personal stories tonight of some of the passengers and crew, including one man who will have a remarkable reunion with the co-pilot who literally gave him the shirt off his back.
Plus, the captain who's being hailed as a hero for saving his passengers. John Blackstone shows us what friends and family are saying about “Sully” the pilot. And Ben Tracy goes to a crash simulator to get some perspective on how everyone on board survived, and what you should do if you ever find yourself in a water crash situation.
Next: Protecting the president. Armen Keteyian takes an exclusive look inside one company that's found a way to build a shield to keep Barack Obama safe. They even let us test its strength by firing automatic weapons at it. You won't want to miss seeing if it holds up.
Finally tonight, you may have heard that superstar cellist Yo Yo Ma has a spot on Barack Obama's iPod. He also holds a place on the Inauguration Day roster. In tonight's "Road to the Inauguration" story, Michelle Miller talks with the man whose music will introduce the next president of the United States.
