Captain Sully Relives Hudson Miracle

1/10/2010 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Captain Chesley B. Sullenberger flew back to the same exact spot where he dominated a flock of devil geese who nearly ruined his day back in 2009 -- only this time, Sully was in a chopper ... and dude stayed out of the Hudson.



It was all for a special airing tonight at 9 PM on TLC, in which Sully -- and nearly everyone associated with Flight 1549 -- relives that fateful moment when our brave hero piloted his way into the pantheon of outstanding American badasses.

The show's called "Brace for Impact" ... we're bracing for more Suuuuuuuuuulllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

This story has been total BS from the beginning. The chance of them ingesting a bird in two engines that far apart was nil. More likely is that they took a bird in one engine and then shut down the wrong (other) engine and then had to glide. This has happenned before to professional flight crews many times in the simulator and a few times in real life, resulting in crashes, I remember a DC-9 crew doing it many years ago in the midwest. There is no way that the real story would be allowed to leak out, as America needs a real hero right now. Also, the pilots forgot to throw the famous ditch switch that the news media made such a big deal about, and they're lucky it didn't sink faster - read the report and you'll see.

You're a simulator leaking professional flight crew BS when you don't know sh*t. You should sink faster than what you don't know.

Re: Sully,

He is a true American hero, who brought all of his passengers and crew home safely. He HAS NOT pursued media/book deals, movie deals, etc. He has no desire for a "reality show."

I've rarely seen a more humble gentleman. While you lot sit at your computers in Mum's basement flat, posting crap all day long, Sully keeps doing his job.

Cut the crap, losers. You haters have nothing worth reading.

Same night of the Simpson's anniversary

Show is NOT needed-alot for a bad situation that turned out OK

Why IF this show was needed was it not shown next week when NOTHING is on

I have to get the repeat showing because I am a fan & collector of Harrison's

reply to #36, hey Mr. 'It's BS', if they accidentally shut down the wrong engine as you claim, how do you explain that the NTSB report says very clearly that bird remains were found in BOTH engines??? Maybe YOU should read the report you claim to be getting this information from.
