The FAA has just released the audio of the US Airways Flight 1549 air traffic control recording, which reinforces how remarkably well pilot Chesley Sullenberger performed after a double bird strike took out the thrust in both engines. What’s clear from the tape is how quickly Sullenberger had to eliminate various options –returning to LaGuardia and landing in New Jersey’s Teterboro– before deciding to land the plane on the river. It was literally just two minutes between the time when he says the plane’s engines were taken out and the time he definitively said he was ditiching in the Hudson. Sullenberger’s voice is entirely calm the whole time, as if he were just encountering some minor turbulence.
