Now a major motion picture from Clint Eastwood, starring Tom Hanks—the inspirational autobiography by one of the most captivating American heroes of our time, Capt. ‘Sully’ Sullenberger—the pilot who miraculously landed a crippled US Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed a remarkable emergency landing when Captain ''Sully'' Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways Flight 1549 onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. His cool actions not only averted tragedy but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide. His story is now a major motion picture from director / producer Clint Eastwood and stars Tom Hanks, Laura Linney and Aaron Eckhart.

Sully's story is one of dedication, hope, and preparedness, revealing the important lessons he learned through his life, in his military service, and in his work as an airline pilot. It reminds us all that, even in these days of conflict, tragedy and uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for—that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.

Ok, but not life-changing. Sully describes his rather ordinary life and picks out the things that he thinks helped him handle a traumatic incident. Once he dealt with the landing on the Hudson I found myself skipping through the homely moralising to the end. I learnt a lot about the airline industry and what it's like to be a pilot, but not having been part of the "wow" generation who watched it, I cannot really connect with the reactions of people who obviously benefited from the feel-good factor after seeing a successful conclusion to a tense drama.

The story was interesting. I also felt the narration was very formal and found it difficult to connect with the characters, until the end when the second narrator concluded.

Great story about an ordinary pilot who saved 155 passengers. He was pushed into the limelight like a bullet. His back story & life leading up to to his split decision & years of talent in the air, his story was very good.
