cine: película sully (con tom hanks)


On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger (Hanks) glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

On Thursday 15 January 2009, 155 people on board US Airways flight 1549 met potential disaster in the sky over New York City.

Yet Captain ‘Sully’ Sullenberger executed a textbook ditching in the Hudson river and saved the lives of everybody on board.

Miracle of the Hudson Plane Crash tells the minute-by-minute story of that day through the compelling first-hand testimonies of those who were there, including passengers, eyewitnesses and rescuers.
