hudson plane crash audio

How great is Sully!

The audio of the plane crash in the Hudson has been released. I loved watching the 6pm news that day - normally the news is depressing, full of terrorist attacks and road rage and violence and drug busts, but on January 15, there was a happy ending!

The pilot, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, was amazing - so incredibly calm. He says "we're going into the Hudson" like it's not a thing. It's incredible that no-one was killed or badly injured. The pilot even remembered to take the passenger manifest with him when he left the cockpit, and he personally walked the plane twice before leaving to make sure they hadn't left anyone behind. Can you imagine how terrifying that would be - walking up and down the aisles of an empty plane that's partially submerged in a river? It gives me chills thinking about it. Good news stories make my day :)
