Real Video & Cockpit Audio of Captain Sully’s US Airways Flight 1549 “Miracle on The Hudson”

I just got back from seeing Clint Eastwood’s awesome new movie, SULLY, starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, and Laura Linney. Throughout the entire, gut-wrenching movie, I couldn’t help but wonder what Sully’s distress call/cockpit recording actually sounded like. To my surprise (or not so surprise based on everything shown in the movie), it is just as serene as Hanks portrayed. And, if my ears hear correctly, it sounds like Eastwood, Hanks, and the rest of the cast recreated the recording as accurately as possible. Below, check out the cockpit recording, videos of the crash and rescue, the original US Airways Flight 1549 crew interview on Letterman (which is recreated for the movie), as well as a link to video from the NTSB hearing and the final NTSB report.
