Sully -- Silence Was Plane "Shocking"

2/3/2009 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chesley SullenbergerWhat was the "Oh hell no" moment for Hudson hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger during his amazing splash landing? Total silence of the plane's engines.

Sully talked for the first time about the crash, since the crash, and tells ESPN, "It was very quiet as we worked, my co-pilot and I ... But to have zero thrust coming out of those engines was shocking – the silence." And he admits, despite his chill demeanor, it was all "turmoil" inside.

Side question: How will Katie Couric feel about Sully's non-silence?
