Great pix Peter!  (and I thought I had too much snow...)
If I were to guess, I'd say that is a variant of the Russell Snowplow.  They were built in Ridgeway, PA, not far from my home town (the factory buildings are still there).

The veteran pilot has been called a hero for this near-perfect emergency water landing.  I'd like to hear what he has to say about this but the airline has issued the flight crew a gag order.

I was watcing CNN right after this happened, it was riveting!

I concur Brother Scott.  The Douglas Invader was an amazing aircraft that went on to achieve even more accolades during the Korean War. 
I found a few good pics of the A-26 on-line, but selected this one just for you...

Sorry Snotty, I have to disagree on the B-24 being a better platform.  Yes, the 24 had a slightly longer range and could carry a heavier payload...  but it simply could not match the Flying Fortress in the areas of armament and the ability to absorb battle damage.  The B-17 was a design from the mid-1930's, however it earned it's rank from the men who flew on them during the 1940's conflict.
If you can find one, ask a man who flew on both in combat.  My g-uncle Gib Williams hated 24's.  He called them "flying-coffins", and was happy to be transferred to a different BG in 1943 that implemented the 17 against the Third Reich.

The sound made by a B-25 at full-throttle is one I will never forget!

Nice idea for a gathering, however they don't host air shows anymore.  The airworthy warbirds were sold-off a few years ago including their restored B-17G "Fuddy Duddy".  There is still a museum there with a nice collection of static craft but it's not the same. 
I remember when the National Warplane Museum (the original organization) first recieved that B-17 in 1983, it was a mess-but it arrived in Geneseo, NY. under it's own power.  It became one of the finest restored Forts in the nation IMHO.
The NWM still puts on a fine air show every summer.  The facilites are spartan, with a grass runway, but there are still many fine examples of historic flying classics in attendance.  Seeing an Avro Lancaster in flight and hearing four Rolls Royce Merlins in sync was an experience I will never forget!
Geneseo is closer to Bob too     Who else is up for an air show?

That's my favorite warbird, thanks Dan!
The National Warplane Heritage Museum in Elmira, New York puts on a fantastic show every August.  The last one I attended had seven B-17's in the air!

Just reverse the polarity at the generator and switch the battery terminals.
