It amazes me how calm these guys sound on tape. Me, personally, if I was piloting a plane that was about to land in the middle of the Hudson River I'd be in freak out mode!
True story. My minister's son-in-law was on this plane. As you can imagine, he told his dad that there was quite a bit of panic onboard. A pregnant woman was knocked down as passengers rushed to the exit. The son, who is a big strong guy, picked up the woman and told everyone on the plane..."Move." Thanks to him, she was the first one off!
