Those are much better. Simply stunning.

Did you all know that there's a button on that plane (and likely other models) that the pilot pushes just seconds before he ditches in the water. Once pushed, it creates a hard seal on all the air flow channels in the craft, thus buying more "float time." So, at the same time the captain of that plane was putting it down, he was either pushing, or ordering the pushing, of this button . . . such that it would happen just a few seconds before impact.
