Includes audio of several frequencies (you might wanna hit pause every now and then to keep track of the big picture), plus the CVR transcript - it doesn't feature the CVR audios as publishing the audio is prohibited in the US.

This is a real fine example of great airmanship.
Note that they tried to get the engines back on till the very last moment.

Thanks for posting, very impressive render. No hint of panic, and I didn't realise just how little time Sullenburger had in which to make the decision to ditch in the Hudson.

Damn. thank god for modern tech to show us just how good a pilot he is.

And yah, the silence from the tower as they hear "hudson" is great.

Though maybe it's just me, but it looked like he knew he might have to from the beginning. Almost the instant the engines go he starts following it.

Capt. Sullenberger's piloting skills certainley delivered a miracle that day.

Everyone on board walked away, I still cant believe he pulled that off.

Sully: "Got any ideas?"

Copilot: "Actually, no"

I think this was - psychologically - a key to the good outcome:
He didn't exclude the most obvious option from the start.
This saved vital seconds later on - he didn't opt for some road or free space landseide instead.


On the other hand:
One can not stress their luck enough:

Had they landed in some lake further out, we would propably have had casualties caused by the cold water.

This truly is a textbook example for decision-finding and evaluationg one's options in short time-frames.

Just think of what the capatin did at the same time:
- flying the plane
- handling the radio
- confirming his co-pilot's QRH actions (some actions require the confirmation of both pilots: handling the engine master-levers, for example)

As a note:
There is a pretty simple reason, why Sully has taken over (apart from the obvious one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ):
On RAT-power (Ram Air Turbine - a small propeller/ generator, that automaticly deploys in case of an all engine out-scenario), only the left hand-side cockpit-screens are powered - the right-hand side remains dark in order to conserve electrical power.
