Movie Review by Fr. Tom Condon, O.P.
I’m sure most of us remember the incredible scene of the “Miracle on the Hudson.” On a winter day in 2009, Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger, successfully landed a US Airways jet in the Hudson River without losing a single one of the 155 passengers. Shortly after takeoff at New York’s La Guardia airport, the plane flew into a flock of birds, knocking out both engines. Fearing he could not return to La Guardia or another airport, Sully felt he had no choice but to do a water landing in the Hudson. Sully became an overnight hero and celebrity for his remarkable landing.
