#26: “Sully”

Time to get high in the friendly skies with “Sully”, a film about that guy who landed the plane in the Hudson River. I think. It’s definitely not about that character from “Monsters, Inc.”  Or is it? I have no idea what’s going on.

From IMDB: “The story of Chesley Sullenberger, an American pilot who became a hero after landing his damaged plane on the Hudson River in order to save the flight’s passengers and crew.”
