Here’s the funny thing. I’ve delivered a million passengers over 40 years in the air, but in the end, I’m gonna be judged on 208 seconds.
No one warned us. No one said, “You are going to lose both engines at a lower altitude than any jet in history. But, be cool, just make a left turn for LaGuardia like you’re going back to pick up the milk.” This was dual engine loss at 2,800 feet followed by an immediate water landing with 155 souls onboard. No one has ever trained for an incident like that. No one.
