I heard that they patched the pilot through to Chuck Norris moments before the water landing, so Chuck could talk him through it.

(I just can`t help myself. Some things never get old to me.)

The flight control sounds stupid. He says like three times that he cant land on a runway so they suggest another one. They even keep asking him to land even after he says he is going to land in the Hudson. The pilot is awesome though.

By far one of the very best pilots this world has ever seen. the crew of this filght , namly the pilot, should all be added to the pages of history as heros.

I love how air control completely ignores "We may end up in the Hudson". Twice. Each time he comes back with runway traffic.

That was really awesome. Ever since it happened I`ve been wondering how he did it.
Made me realize how terrifying it would have been to have been on that plane.

That was awesome! The pilot was so effin calm. How many times did he have to tell the control tower he was going into the hudson. WTF? That control tower guy needs to be evaluated. Every flyer on that plane received an immediate $5000 check for lost luggage 2 days after it happened. Next time I fly, I know it will be with u.s. airways.

It was an incredible landing, Especially considering what short amount of time it happened in.

Wait i still see the left side of the group standing on water/buoyant wing of aircraft?

yes. theres not enough room on that floating thing. but there obviously in no danger anymore. worse come to worse youd have to swim a couple hundred meters. which in that cold would be horrible. but bearable. but i id assume somebody would see a plane hittin the water and call rescue or something

No offense to all the other airplane pilots, but if what happened had to happen to someone, the pilot of the plane was the person to have it happen to. Experienced, has glider experience, and IIRC he was also a union safety person or something like that.

Flame - are you kidding me? This plane had everything to crash somewhere in the middle of NY and produce a disaster (think running into major skyscraper) and it turned out no one got killed? This is amazing!!

I`m surprised it landed so smoothly and didn`t sink. Also LOL at the CG people at the end.

"I still can`t believe that birds took it down"

Bird strikes are common enough. It doesn`t take a lot of flesh & bones to seize up a turbine engine. They were just unlucky in that the birds went into BOTH engines.

I can`t believe someone hasn`t invented a proper guard yet to prevent the birds from going in.

It may actually help train new/other pilots to be able to make that landing as well as they did this one . . . if/when the need arises.

"anyways this is kinda dumb, its not gonna make the crash un-happen"

That is not the purpose of air crash investigations, smart one. They are designed to improve the safety of air travel and are intended to prevent future acidents.

Everytime the guy on the other end suggested a runway I expected the pilot to say something along the lines of:
"Shut up, damnit! We`re landing in the hudson! This big bitch is going swimming and that`s all there is to it!"

I still can`t believe that birds took it down. . .

Weight of each bird = 5 lbs
Weight of plane = 800000 lbs

Amazing. I still think of the movie "Birds" each time I hear this story. . .

Ok, we`ve all heard about the Hudson River. I would like to get details on the New York flight that crashed. That one was more devastating.

This was very cool though, I like how all the people are like cheering...I woulda been flipping out!

You`re joking, right?

Since when the hell did we -ever- reconstruct ANY historical event with the aim to undo it?

After you answer that question (correctly, I hope) ask yourself now, why ELSE would they reconstruct it?

Higher understanding?

For the public?

Just for kicks?

All of which are viable reasons, unlike the one you assumed they made it for.
