  • THE MOVIE SUBTLELY BASED ON

  • THE 2009 MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON

  • HITS CATHEDRALLERS TODAY.

  • THE MOVIE SULLY.

  • -- THE MOVIE SULLY BASED ON THE

  • 2009 MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON HITS

  • THEATERS TODAY.

  • Reporter: IT'S BEEN MORE

  • THAN 7 YEARS SINCE THAT MIRACLE

  • ON THE HUDSON.

  • RETURNING TO THE RIVER WITH

  • SULLY, IT IS EVIDENT THE MOMENT

  • REMAINS FRESH ON HIS MIND.

  • WHAT COULD HAVE GONE WRONG ON

  • THE HUDSON?

  • IF WE HAVE TOUCHED WITH ONE

  • WING TOO LOW.

  • IF THE WINGS WERE NOT LEVEL.

  • SPUN US AROUND WE COULD HAVE

  • BROKEN APART.

  • TOO GREAT A DESCENT.

  • IT WOULD HAVE BROKEN APART AND

  • WOULDN'T HAVE FLOATED LONG

  • ENOUGH FOR THE RESCUE.

  • IF WE MISJUDGED THE HEIGHT TO

  • BEGIN THE LANDING EVEN BY A

  • FRACTION OF A SECOND.

  • WE ARE GOING TO END UP IN

  • THE HUDSON.

  • SAY AGAIN?

  • SO THERE'S THIS MOVIE OUT

  • THERE AND YOU'RE PLAYED BY TOM

  • HANKS.

  • IF YOU CAN'T GET JIMMY STEWART,

  • TOM HANKS IS GOOD.

  • [ LAUGHTER ]

  • TOM CAME TO OUR HOME AND

  • SPENT ALMOST HALF A DAY THERE

  • AND ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE

  • TALKED ABOUT WAS THE

  • RESPONSIBILITY HE FELT ABOUT

  • PLAYING A REAL PERSON STILL

  • LIVING.

  • BUT THAT AFTER THE FILM HAS RUN

  • ITS COURSE I'LL HAVE TO BACK TO

  • LIVING MY LIFE AND HE WANTED TO

  • BE SURE HE DIDN'T SCREW IT UP

  • FOR ME.

  • Reporter: IN SULLY, TOM

  • HANKS IS AT THE CONTROLS WITH

  • HIS COPILOT JEFF SKILES.

  • TOGETHER THEY TAKE THE AUDIENCE

  • THROUGH THE HARROWING 208

  • SECONDS OF U.S. AIRWAYS FLIGHT

  • 1549.

  • BRACE FOR IMPACT.

  • WHAT I REALLY WANTED THIS

  • FILM TO HAVE WAS A REAL UNDER

  • CURRENT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF

  • OUR COMMON HUMANITY AND I THINK

  • IT'S THERE.

  • THIS IS ABOUT A GROUP OF PEOPLE

  • AT A TIME IN THE WORLD'S

  • HISTORY WHEN IT SEEMED AS IF

  • EVERYTHING WAS GOING WRONG

  • DURING THE 2008, 2009 FINANCIAL

  • MELTDOWN.

  • IT SEEMED LIKE NO ONE COULD DO

  • ANYTHING RIGHT.

  • THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T

  • KNOW EACH OTHER CAME TOGETHER

  • IN THIS PLACE AND THEIR TIME

  • AND MADE IT THEIR MISSION IN

  • LIFE TO SEE THAT EVERY LIFE WAS

  • SAVED.

  • EVERYONE KNOWS THAT WE LANDED,

  • THAT EVERYONE SURVIVED AND WE

  • HAVE CELEBRATED THAT.

  • Reporter: THE 15-MONTH

  • INVESTIGATION BY THE NATIONAL

  • TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD IS

  • THE FILM'S CENTRAL FOCUS.

  • THE NTSB MADE ABOUT 3 DOZEN

  • IMPORTANT SAFETY

  • RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPROVE

  • SAFETY GOING FORWARD.

  • BUT THE NTSB CANNOT MANDATE

  • THAT THEY BE ADOPTED BY THE

  • INDUSTRY.

  • THAT'S UP TO THE FAA, OUR

  • REGULATORY BODY TO DO.

  • AND SADLY, ONLY TWO OR THREE OF

  • THE 35 RECOMMENDATIONS HAVE

  • BEEN ADOPTED BY INDUSTRY AND

  • MANDATED BY THE FAA.

  • Reporter: WHY NOT?

  • THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS

  • BUT THE BOTTOM LINE ULTIMATELY

  • IS THAT THE AIRLINES IN A VERY

  • COST COMPETITIVE INDUSTRY ARE

  • RELUCTANT TO TAKE ON ADDITIONAL

  • SAFETY MEASURES THAT THEY VIEW

  • AS A BURDEN OR ADDITIONAL COST.

  • DID YOU MAKE ANY MISTAKES?

  • OF COURSE.

  • IT WASN'T PERFECT.

  • BUT IT WORKED.

  • AND I WAS CONFIDENT I WOULD

  • FIND SOMETHING THAT WOULD WORK.

  • LOOKED PERFECT TO ME.

  • AS NOW, SULLY BECAME A NATIONAL

  • HERO.

  • HE IS NOW A CBS NEWS AVIATION

  • AND SAFETY CONTRIBUTOR.

  • I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS.

  • CANNOT WAIT.

  • SO EXCITING.
