Plot: On January 15, 2009, veteran US Airways pilots Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenburger and First Officer Jeffery “Jeff” Skiles prepare to board US Airways Flight 1549 departing from LaGuardia Airport. Sully taxis his A320 to runway 4 and takes off. Barely three minutes into the flight, disaster strikes, the Airbus A320 hits a flock of geese, which cripples both engines of the A320. Without engine power and no airport within range, Sully is forced to land his ill-fated airliner in the frigid waters of the Hudson River. With 155 passengers and crew on board, Sully, against immeasurable odds, successfully ditches the aircraft, sparing the lives of the crew and passengers and he is dubbed a hero by the press for his actions. But soon afterwards, Sully’s life is invaded by reporters and investigators who force Sully to put his job, family and reputation on the line. This is the story of what we know today as “The Miracle on the Hudson.”
