indeed....I would have been screaming like a little girl once I realized I was going down in the Hudson. Of course, after that, I might of had to join the not quite mile high club with the head flight attendant.

I didn't say I'd get finished. Is that a criteria for successfully joining the club?

Also, now that there is a building taller than the maximum altitude that US1549 hit, it'd be much easier to just go to Dubai with Mrs. MV and get a top-floor room and join the club that way.

I don't know on that question, but I'm pretty sure being above 1 mile AGL is a criteria, so you would be out.

There's a similar simulation the NTSB or FAA produced for last year's Colgan Air crash in Buffalo. It leaves one a little unsettled, especially if you understand what's happening on the controls.
