Day 27: Sully: Miracle on the Hudson: 2016

The film follows Chesley Sullenberger’s January 2009 emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, in which all 155 passengers and crew survived with only minor injuries, and the subsequent publicity and investigation.

On January 15, 2009, US Airways pilots Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and First Officer Jeff Skiles board US Airways Flight 1549 from LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Three minutes into the flight, at an approximate altitude of 2,800 feet (approx. 850 m), the Airbus A320 strikes a flock of birds, disabling both engines. Without engine power and judging themselves unable to reach nearby airports (Teterboro Airport being the closest), Sully ditches the aircraft on the Hudson River. The crew and passengers evacuate without any fatalities. The press and public hail Sullenburger a hero, but the incident leaves him haunted, and experiencing a dream in which the plane crashes into a building.

Story: In the film Captain Sully conveys that due to the engines being out he had to make the decision to land on the Hudson. This decision is questioned as the data seems to show that he could have safely returned. Sully insists it was impossible and finally when all of the information becomes available the board concludes that Sullenberger acted correctly in selecting the best of the options available to him, which in the event saved the lives of everyone aboard. Scrapbook about a time you knew you were right.

Scrapbooking about how the National Youth Gathering trip 2019 was such an uncertainty of outcome felt “right”. The concern for Truman being miserable grew as we approached the trip. He had moments that this trip didn’t seem like a “right” course of action, and it was as if he were going to crash hard at times. In the end, the data proved that he made the best choice. The photos show neither the magnitude of the crowds nor the noise level. Using some haphazard zig-zag stitching relays the tension as well as placing the feather reminds me of being under God’s protective wings.
