About this creation
January 15-2009

US Airways Flight 1549

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger: Uh what a view of the Hudson today.
First Officer Jeffrey Skiles: yeah.


Sullenberger: Mayday mayday mayday. Uh this is uh Cactus fifteen thirty
nine hit birds, we've lost thrust (in/on) both engines we're turning back towards LaGuardia.
LaGuardia departure control: Ok uh, you need to return to LaGuardia? Turn left heading of uh two two zero.


Departure control: Cactus fifteen twenty nine turn right two eight zero, you can land runway one at Teterboro.
Skiles: Is that all the power you got? ... (Wanna) number one? Or we got power on number one.
Sullenberger: We can't do it.
Sullenberger: Go ahead, try number one.
Departure control: Kay which runway would you like at Teterboro?

Skiles: Got no power on either one? Try the other one.
Radio from another plane: Two one zero uh forty seven eighteen. I think he said he's going in the Hudson.


This incident has often been referred to as the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’. When the Airbus was ditched in New York’s Hudson River, many people could not believe what happened. What happened next was even more spectacular.



Overview of my creation, this is built to represent 30 seconds after landing. The boats are on their way to assist with the rescue.

Another front view of the creation. The water is completely SNOT.

Rear shot of the creation.

This incident just goes to show that miracles do happen.

"We had a Miracle on 34th Street. I believe now we have had a Miracle on the Hudson."
David Paterson, New York State Governor.

Sorry, I can't really see a miralce here (as a concept). More like a vig. 2 points. Oh and thanks for pointing out that the water was completely SNOT. Wow!

Cool idea. Could have been more detailed with shore and buildings to more clearly illustrate what the incident was. 3 points.

It is a nice little build, and the plane is well done. Can't give it more than three (3) points though as the level of detail just isn't there. Lee.

Great job Mario Man!!! I work in the aviation industry and can honestly say I've lost more friends to airplane/helo crashes than I have car crashes. That day was def. a miracle, and Sully did a fantastic job that day. You can honestly say that piloting is and always will be his destiny.

Sorry Lee, I missed that. fixed, and it is 'Miracle/s'

We have asked that the builder clearly state what the concept is, yet I don't see it in your writeup. Is it miracle? hope? heroism? Please rectify this oversight. Lee.
