Trivia: During the several scenes where the pilots are communicating with Air Traffic Control, they are always addressed as flight 1549. During the real incident, however, both the pilots and controllers misspoke, labeling the flight number as both 1529 and 1539. This was likely due to the intensely stressful situation.
Factual error: Scenes of the CGI Airbus A320 do not show the RAT (Ram Air Turbine) deployed. When the A320 loses power in both engines, the RAT automatically deploys to provide minimal electrical power to the plane. (01:20:05)
Charles Porter: Mr. Skiles, is there anything you would have done differently?
Jeff Skiles: Yes. I'd do it in July.
