Can You Land On The Hudson River?

16 January has already become a part of aviation history. After a double bird strike the engines of US Airways flight 1549 completely stopped and the pilot landed the plane safely on New York’s Hudson River. The outstanding pilot performance of Captain Chesley Sullenberger will be remembered forever.  The plane was full with fuel and passengers aboard, the engines did not work and besides that he had to put down the plane on a river without landing gears, without reversers in the middle of New York City, one of the world’s mostly populated metropolitans.

Now you can learn it yourselves how difficult this maneuver is. Of course this time it is just virtual, but still it gives you some idea how hard it is. I am sure that for some people this is still traumatic, but as an old commonsense says: humor heals everything.
