Gallery of the Intrepid – Pilot’s Edition


Here is a cool 3D recreation of the U.S. Airways Flight 1549 ditching in the Hudson River, complete with audio.  When Captain Sullenberger takes the controls from the First Officer (who was flying the plane), he says calmly: “my airplane.”  No muss, no fuss; just quiet competence.  No panic; just getting the job done.

Well done, Captain.   Ever think of running for President?

    Not so sure that should have been characterized as a “crash”…looks like a mighty fine and relatively smooth landing to me.
