2US Airways Flight 1549

Dubbed the “Hudson River Landing,” the event that took place on January 15, 2009, was a remarkable incident that served as the inspiration behind the movie “Sully,” starring Tom Hanks as the lead character.
The flight took off from LaGuardia airport on a seemingly normal day with clear skies. However, just moments after takeoff, disaster struck as the plane collided with a flock of geese, causing damage to the pilot’s window, and wings.
