Sorry if this is a re-post, but pretty awesome- www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tE_5eiYn0D0#t=109
Hah thats pretty cool, thanks for posting.
Capt Sully and the First Officer clank when they walk. They're over NY City in a dead jet liner and both are calm, cool, and collected.
WOW That is flight sim FSX. What a good find. Thanks for that.
Exactly. This is a great example of what training does. You might still be scared, but you're able to function exactly like you trained.
Wasn't just the Capt. and FO who talk the talk and walk the walk. Every member of that crew and the flight controllers did the same.
Thanks for posting that. Nice work from the good captain.
that was pretty cool!
Gave me chills to watch. Great video.
His face should be in the dictionary, under "Professionalism".
Yah know, I've read a couple of Monday morning QBs on flight sim forums saying Flight 1549 could have made it to Teterboro for a landing if they had turned for it immediately after realizing they were in deep poo. Most of these have determined this after recreating the incident in FSX and all admit it took them several tries to get it right. Of course they also knew what was going to happen before it did and were sitting at a computer and not in a cockpit. I think I would have done just what Sully did except for likely killing myself and everyone else on board. So, do any real pilots think Sully made the wrong decision? Would you have done it different? Any choice words for the computer jockeys who think he should have tried for Teterboro?
ps I'm kidding about doing exactly what Sully did, I would have been soiling myself while sobbing uncontrollably and beating on the dash screaming, "MOMMY!!".
It cracks me up that simmers who have never flown any aircraft, let alone airliners, think they know more or are better pilots than real pilots.
I think they did exactly what they had to do to bring every single person on that plane home safe. And they did. Anyone that disputes this shows that they are purely incapable of logical thought. Good job everyone on board and everyone in the crew, damned good job.
It is, (repost) but I can watch it many times. Thanks for posting it again.
Simply amazing.. watching the sim, and the events that happened.. who says there are no modern day miracles.
Take this for what its worth. I am NOT a pilot, though I have a few dozen hours at the controls of helicopters from an OH-58, MD-500, UH-1 and an A-star, and probably close to a hundred in various bush planes from Piper Cubs to a Twin Otter. But I am aircrew, and I've dealt with emergencies, and inflight issues before.
I think he did right. By placing himself over the river, if he'd had a re-light he'd have had the power to climb back out.
If he hadn't got a re-light, he'd be able to put it down on the river like he did without much of any other hazards from the outside.
However, had he gone for Teterboro, and not gotten a re-light it could have been ugly trying to put down without power. Buildings, cars, other air traffic, power lines ect all are hazards they would have to avoid. And any avoidance manuvers would have bled off precious airspeed, resulting in either a crash, or much less controlled, and safe landing.
With pretty much any issue like that, it takes time to figure out what the hell just happened, and what the extent of the damage is. The worst thing to do is panic and get behind yourself. Instead the remained calm, consummate professionals and flew the airplane to the ground. They picked a safe, and fairly easy location to put her down, and did so with minimal damage.
I did get a big kick out of the pilot asking the first officer "Have any other ideas"
