On Jan. 15, 2009, three minutes after takeoff on a routine flight from La Guardia, N.Y. to Charlotte, NC, US Airways Flight 1549 suddenly fell from the sky. Without power, veteran pilot Capt. “Sully” Sullenberger decided to ditch the Airbus A320-214 into the frigid waters of the Hudson River. Over the radio, he announced ‘brace for impact” and moments later the plane’s fuselage cracked open upon impact with the river. All 155 people aboard survived. The media called it the “Miracle on the Hudson”, and Sully was celebrated as a hero for his grace under pressure. How did Sully’s incredible instincts and skill save 155 lives in a situation where most other pilots would have failed?
