Sully is the biographical drama retelling the story of American pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who heroically landed a troubled aircraft on the Hudson River.
On January 15, 2009, veteran US Airways pilots Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffery "Jeff" Skiles board US Airways Flight 1549 departing from LaGuardia Airport and take off. Barely three minutes into the flight, disaster strikes, the Airbus A320 hits a flock of Canada Geese, which cripples both engines of the A320. Without engine power and no airport within range, Sully is forced to land his ill-fated airliner in the frigid waters of the Hudson River. With 155 passengers and crew on board, Sully, against immeasurable odds, successfully ditches the aircraft, sparing the lives of the crew and passengers and he is dubbed a hero by the press for his actions.
