iPhone App Lets You Become iSully

3/24/2009 1:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If even one person died during that amazing airplane landing on the Hudson River in January, this would be the most tasteless thing ever. But everyone was fine, so instead it's an iPhone game.

iphone

One of the top flight simulator programs around has released a game where you take on the roll of Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger by forcing you to make an emergency landing in the Hudson. The plane actually suffers engine failure as the result of a bird strike and -- are you ready for this??? -- features the actual audio communication between air traffic control and US Airways Flight 1549.

Flight school is expensive, but the app is only 99 cents.

It's not all that big of a deal but this was a major life turning point for the passengers. I don't think it's right to turn something so tramatic into a toy. I mean, what next, a game where iPhone profits off the World Trade Center explosions? Some things are just better left alone...

This is ridiculous! Just think of how many flights weren't successful and how many people have lost their lives... are they going to make an app where you can crash the plain and kill everyone on board???

No wonder, huh John?    

This reminds me of another insensitive game. The company that made it should know that thousands of people die EVERY DAY in automobile accidents. The game is called something like Great Theft of Automobiles or something. It's made by the same company that make those energy drinks that let you become a Rockstar. Whats next, are they going to make an app that lets you kill Nazi's during WWII?!? Everyone knows about the Holocaust, I am absolutely CERTAIN that no company would commit financial suicide by depicting something as horribly insensitive as WWII nazi's and the holocaust!

Why is it in poor taste when no one was killed in the accident?

Are you people retarded or are you REALLY that self righteous and petty?

It's a game that you can fly a plane that really crashed in to the Hudson in which NO ONE DIED and the pilots are praised as heroes.

I've played hundreds of different games that re-enact real life traumatic situations, many of which really DID happen, where everyone DIES. No one dies in the sully game but still you retards are up in arms...

What the hell is wrong with you people?

If the KARDASHIAN girls sat on the wing, their braided armpit and back hair would have been a convenient tether for swimming passengers.
