As amazing as the safe landing of the disabled plane was by the pilot, those ferry captains did an unbelievable job too. When you watch the video, the first one is on the scene within minutes, and then the other two are there seconds later. And all the captains managed to gently pull up alongside the plane, stay with it in that strong current, and their crews immediately got the passengers off the wings. One accidental bump by one of the boats into the plane and the passengers would have likely fallen into the water and probably drowned. (If you haven't seen this Coast Video video, the plane comes into the screen from the left at about the 2 minute mark.)
