Reenactment (FSX) of US Air Flight 1549, Crash into the Hudson

Posted on 22. Feb, 2009 by in Featured

This is a good production. Note the buildings on both sides of the river, it is easy to see that the river was the only option. The FAA ran simulations trying to reach various airports and couldn’t. Sully made the right decision and stuck to it.

    Can you refer me to your info source on the FAA simulations? I’m really curious to look at that.

    Also, what’s your take on the Amsterdam crash? I read one comment on engine stall. Seems odd with two engines. Too bad the flight deck really took it. 3 dead in there.

    Re the Amsterdam wreck…I also notice no fire. Fuel exhaustion??

    Just got back from BOS. I’ve not heard much on the Amsterdam flight. I saw one official quoted as saying the muddy field prevented a fire. So I assume that there was fuel. I also saw a quote from a union rep that stated fuel was not an issue. The airplane was fairly new (2002), so this one will be interesting. I’ll check into it deeper tomorrow.

    I’ll see if I can find the FAA link.
