Hudson River Flight

Cactus Flight 1549 Accident Reconstruction (US Airways)

Nothing more to say other than I want him to pilot the plane when I fly.

Bravo! Sully kept his cool and did an amazing job.

On behalf of all other pilots too, I do want to say they are all trained to perform Emergency landing procedures with engines out.

That said, it still takes a cool head and top pro to achieve what Sully did and a lot of people owe him their lives. OUTSTANDING JOB!

I love the final note from a passenger - WE ARE VERY LUCKY! Indeed!

Very cool reconstruction, makes it even more amazing that no one was seriously hurt when you examine the incident in detail.
