Capt. Sully and the controllers were real pros through this.

I’m not a fan of disaster porn but that was a real pleasure to listen to.

That and experience. I'm sure his glider experience came in handy too.

Nobody’s perfect. I guess as long as there’s no similar flight number in that area it works out OK.

Early on in the event several posters here took exception to news reports that controllers had instructed the flight to land at this airport or that airport. A couple of us insisted the controllers would never, ever 'instruct' a pilot what to do in an emergency. We took a bit of heat. These exchanges really back up what we were saying at the time, that the PIC would be calling the shots with ATC doing what was necessary to accommodate the decisions being made in the cockpit. If it were just a matter of saying "we told you so" I wouldn't have posted it though. Truth is, it's very informative to hear how matter of fact the situation was handled by everyone involved. The very first transmission is departure giving them a turn, then the captain responds with the fact they've lost both engines. Notice there is no change in the tone or pitch of either the flight crew or the guys on the ground. I suspect you would have heard just about the same exchanges from any flight involving the captain of a scheduled airline flight. Not to take away from Capt. Sully's accomplishments, but the level of professionalism that's in those cockpits is truly amazing!

Most folks have no idea what's going on in the tower and cockpit. They've seen too many movies where aircraft are shown with an "EJECT!" light.

>> Air Force training.

In all the years I have been on Free Republic, I have never taken a comment personally - until now. Sir, you’re outta line. I’m a retired B-767 Captain & Line Check Airman for a major airline, Instructor pilot, Vietnam veteran. Frankly, you don’t know what you’re talking about.

I flew large airplanes between 1970 and 2004 - DC-3, -6, -7, -8, Connies, B-707, -720, -727, -737, -757, and -767. I saw NO significant difference in the skill levels of airline pilots between all the Air Force, Army, civilian, Marine Corps and Navy pilots in my career. Period.

I know one or two military trained pilots...Air Force and Navy...a lot of them end up as commercial pilots. Cool under pressure ...nothing but respect from me! If they couldn’t have hacked the training, they would have busted out. It takes an extraordinary person to be a great pilot.
