If you think Captain Sullenberger was a hero BEFORE…watch this video. If you have ANY appreciation at all for flight and all things airplanes, you’ll completely respect what you’re about to see in this video. This video accurately reflects the time Flight 1549 had to react and respond to the bird strikes.
One thing that amazes me is Sullenberger’s resistance to land at an Aiport despite ATC telling him to do so. If he would have listened to them, I guarantee you a land ditching wouldn’t have ended well for the plane and it’s passengers. I am blown away by the speed of his decisions and how calmly he handles the situation.
Oh, and you must watch this full screen to get the full affect!
