|Plot: On January 15, 2009, veteran US Airways pilots Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffery Skiles board US Airways Flight 1549 departing from LaGuardia Airport en route to Charlotte Douglas International Airport and take off. Barely three minutes into the flight at an altitude of approximately 2,800 feet (850 m), disaster strikes as the Airbus A320 hits a flock of Canada geese, which disables both engines. Without engine power and without any airports in a safe distance (the closest being Teterboro Airport in New Jersey), Sully decides to ditch his ill-fated airliner in the frigid waters of the Hudson River. Despite seemingly impossible odds, Sullenberger manages to land the aircraft in the Hudson, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew aboard. The press and public immediately hail him as a hero, but the experience left him seeing visions of the plane crashing into a building.
Hours later, however, Sullenberger learns that tests conducted for the National Transportation Safety Board suggest that the left engine was still running at idle after the birds were sucked in. On paper, this would have left Sullenberger with enough power to return to LaGuardia or land at Teterboro. Furthermore, the NTSB board of inquiry claims that several flight simulations created from all available data of the incident conclude that the plane could have been able to safely land at either airport even with both engines disabled. Sullenberger, however, maintains that he lost both engines, which left him without nearly enough time, speed or altitude to guide the plane to a safe landing at an airport.
