Respect to Sully for saving the 150+ lives onboard the aircraft. And of course for usage of piloting skills to perfectly land the plane! What a legend!


I personally remember seeing the A320 tied up in downtown a few days after the Miracle on the Hudson. I was amazed seeing the fuselage in a terrible state but the risks took were worth the damage no offense.

Cos of gliding long

How on earth is this 10 years ago already! That’s flown by.

What an absolutely phenomenal piece of flying that was. Kept a cool head, used all his experience and saved an almost certain disaster.

Just brilliant

This right here was nothing short of a miracle. This 10 years went by so quick, even for me I was 6 at the time. My memory of it is still pretty good, and seeing it all over TV as I had a flight earlier that day Jan 15,2009

My dad, who workes in NYC, witnessed Times Square lighting up with breaking news articles that day.

Thank you to Sully, and the rest of the crew that made all 155 live past that horrific accident.

I just remember in school hearing someone talk about a plane that landing in the Hudson River. I remember my former teacher turning on the news for us to watch. I was astonished. It is still hard, even ten years later, to figure out the numbers and chance of the success of this landing

My close friend’s grandfather was on that flight, it was a very stressful day for him at school when he was called up to the office to be told what happened.

Still remember seeing this on the news when it happened. Unbelievable feat that the crew of that plane pulled off. The sky is safer with crews like that of Cactus 1549.
