Sully (2016) Tom Hanks – Movie Reviews

Sully is a docudrama that tells the story of the events surrounding the water landing in the New York’s Hudson River for a commercial jet en route to Charlotte piloted by veteran Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger on January 15, 2009. The Airbus A320 lost both engines after flying into a large flock of Canada geese turing takeoff from LaGuardia Airport, causing Sully and co-pilot Jeff Skiles to have to make the quick decision on whether they could make it back to LaGuardia or a nearby airstrip, or if they must take the risky chance of downing the plane in the icy river. The well-publicized end result on that fateful morning was that Sully, all of the crew, and all 150 passengers survived that day, dubbed the “Miracle on the Hudson”, making the pilot an overnight celebrity and hero in the eyes of millions.
