Summary On Thursday 15th January 2009, 155 people on board US Airways flight 1549 faced their worst nightmare. Less than two minutes into the flight, a flock of geese struck the plane, breaking both engines. With no power, Captain Chelsey Sullenberger decides he has only one real option: to guide his crippled plane away from crowded Manhattan and attempt the near impossible - to land in the Hudson River. Miracle of the Hudson Plane Crash, screening as part of the CRISIS season of documentaries, tells the minute by minute story of that day through the compelling first hand testimonies of those who were there - from the passengers, eyewitnesses and the rescuers. Few people have faced death in a plane crash and lived to tell their tale. Woven with archive footage from the day, CGI and footage from a flight simulator, these candid, honest interviews reveal what it's like to think you only have seconds to live. The program also forensically unpacks how the plane managed to land so successfully on water. Using an airline flight simulator, CGI footage, and an experienced airline pilot, we will recreate the fateful flight and explore how Captain 'Sully' Sullenberger managed to execute a textbook ditching and avert a catastrophe in the middle of New York City. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Darlow Smithson Productions.
