    Pretty sad for Sully when you consider he demonstrated incredible skills as a commercial pilot and due to no fault of his own was forced into retirement after the incident.

    I love the radio exchange between the tower and the Plane.

    What do you mean “forced”? He retired a year afterward. Probably realized he’d make more money outside of flying.

    The flight was like 4 minutes long.

    The movie was 2 hours.

    This video gives you a sense of things, including speed and altitude. Also how they were going through the checklist AND communicating AND navigating AND flying the plane.

    Compare 1549 with this outcome. Listen to the stress in the pilot’s voice.

    Watch about the best 10-15 minutes. Unfortunately not at the beginning of the movie. Watch this link and the subsequent ones.
