Who remembers the plane that had an emergency landing on the Hudson River in 2009? Now, do you happen to remember what most of the survivors and crew were wrapped in after they safely exited the plane and got on dry land? Red Cross blankets, of course!
A film directed by Clint Eastwood revisiting “the miracle on the Hudson” is set to release on September 9. It focuses on the flight’s pilot, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, played by Tom Hanks.
We are honored to be included in the film, helping to reconstruct the aftermath of the water landing. Hear from a handful of Red Cross volunteers who were on the scene in New York in 2009, and had the privilege of recreating their role for the movie.
We are eagerly awaiting the movie’s release and will be cheering on our Red Cross volunteers! Find out more on redcross.org and the official Sully website.
