In a new blog post on Air Facts, Tony Vallillo, a retired American Airlines captain, says that “Sully” — the Clint Eastwood movie about the Miracle on the Hudson, U.S. Airways Flight 1549 — is a movie that “any pilot, and especially an airline pilot, can watch without being mortified by technical and artistic errors on the part of the filmmakers.”
“The portions of the movie that depict the flight and the water landing are done to near perfection,” he continues. “Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart not only play the role of airline pilots superbly, but they even manage to look a good deal like the originals.”
