On January 15th, 2009, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) and co-pilot Jeff Skiles (Aaron Eckhart) were forced to make a water landing into the Hudson River when a flock of geese flew into the engines on their flight. Although every life was saved and Sully is viewed as a national hero, he is investigated for his actions when several simulator tests show that he could have returned to LaGuardia Airport.

During a board meeting, Sully proves that he made the right choice because he acted in a life-and-death situation. To this day, the incident is known as "The Miracle on the Hudson".

Thanks Jeremy!
