CVR of US Air Flight 1549 - the truth about what went on.
It seems that nowadays EVERYBODY is a hero. Sully is a hero, the 9/11
firefighters were heroes, every soldier who can spell "Viet Nam" is a
Society seems to need heroes. Or at least the media seems to want to jam
them down our throats. Seems to me that the term gets diluted every time
someone is called a "hero" for just doing their job...as Sully did.
I can just imagine how the transcript of the CVR is going to read...
Co-pilot: "Number two's gone, boss."
Sully: "I know it! What do I look like, an R-22 pilot? Just shut the
f*cker down, boy. Oh, and tell Departure that we need to come back in
and land. F*cking birds..."
Co-pilot: "Sheesh, somebody got up on the wrong side of his throne this
morning. You don't have to insult me just because I got my commercial
helicopter rating in the mighty Robinson. Oh, and by the way, sir, we're
not climbing, if you even care. Maybe your decision to take on that
extra 5,000 pounds of fuel wasn't so hot, Captain."
Sully: "One more comment like that and I'll make sure the union keeps
you in RJ's for the rest of your miserable, short career."
Sully: "SON OF A BITCH!"
Co-pilot: "Number one's failing, boss."
Sully: "I can see that! Am I a-f*cking-sleep? Can I not read the gauges?
Am I not flying the plane here?"
Co-pilot: "I'm just sayin'..."
Sully: "&%$%$@! Canadians, sending their f*cking geese down here every
winter. Why, if I ever *see* another Canadian I'm gonna punch him right
in the throat. I *HATE* Canadians."
Co-pilot: "Everybody does, boss. Think we can make Teterboro or straight-in
to 22 at Newark?"
Sully: "Yeah, probably. But f*ck Teterboro! Let's go to Newark. I've
flown out of Teterboro. Short damn runways...always a crosswind. And
their FBO's suck. I'd rather land in the Hudson f*cking river than land
at Teterboro. Hey...."
Co-pilot: "You're not..."
Sully: "Why not? Maybe we can take out some sailboats with some prick
Co-pilot: "You ever land on the water before?"
Sully: "Plenty of times! I got my seaplane rating back in 1946. I think
it was in a...Piper...somethingoranother, I forget. Never mind. It'll
all come back to me. Pull out the Before Water Landing checklist and run
Co-pilot: (flipping through the stack of checklists) "Can't seem to find one
Sully: "Fooled ya! HAH! There ain't one! Just get on the horn and tell
the people to put their heads between their legs and kiss...no wait,
that won't sound good on on the CVR tape...make it, 'brace for
collision'...no wait, make it 'brace for impact.' Yeah, that's better.
No wait! Tell them that out the left side of the plane they can see the
Intrepid Museum, and that if they'd like to visit it, they'll be able
to, this afternoon, like, in about twenty minutes. Oh, and ring the
stews and have them bring me a rum and coke. If I'm gonna do this, I
need a good stiff drink."
Co-pilot: "You know, if you pull this off CNN will be calling you the Hero
Pilot of the Year."
Sully: "F*ck CNN. Liberal bastards. All I care about is what the
fair-and-balanced Fox News will call me. I hope Fox News calls me a
Co-pilot: (sighing) "They probably will too. Nobody will remember *my* name.
It'll be 'Sully this'...and, 'Sully that.' 'Captain Sully, the big
f*cking hero.' Like you are the only f*cking one in the cockpit."
Sully: "You're quite bitter. You really are a helicopter pilot at heart,
aren't you? You know, some pilots wait their whole career to be called a
hero. I mean, sh!t, I've only got two years to go to retirement. That
Co-pilot: "We're not down yet, Captain Skygod."
Sully: "I know, this thing glides pretty well, huh? Dammit, no
sailboats. Oh well, let's see if we can buzz one of those damn
sightseeing helicopters. What's best-glide/engines out?"
Co-pilot: "Beats the **** outta me."
Co-pilot: "F*ck if I know."
Sully: "Britney Spears' birthday?"
Co-pilot: "December 2, 1981."
Sully: "Well, I'm glad you know SOMETHING! Just gimme full flaps..."

This was a light-hearted attempt at humour, Aero Rad, but you have attempted to try to turn it against pilots again, in another of your ongoing vendettas.
Why don't you consider checking out of here on a permanent basis, instead of continually torturing your sick mind?

He is a loser.......plain and simple. But he does help PIREP in a way!
the more he ecourages trouble the more posts and hits and better for advertising stats I guess!
I do notice he went quiet after one of my recent pastings....got caught out fair and square!

The options the pilots had to choose from were not brain busters, were they.
Land in the Hudson River, or land in downtown New York among the tall buildings.
Thank God he made the brilliant decision he did.
