Did You Know?


During the in-flight emergency, Sully asks his co-pilot Jeff Skiles to “get the QRH.” The Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) contains all the procedures applicable for abnormal and emergency conditions in an easy-to-use format. In addition, performance data corrections are also provided for specific conditions. The aviation acronym “QRH” is never explained or defined anywhere in the movie. See more »


No slide is visible when the forward boarding door is opened, forcing a passenger to jump into the river. While this is a factual moment that actually happened (the forward slide did not inflate immediately and a passenger was directed by a flight attendant to jump into the river), that slide would still have been visible, albeit not inflated. Evacuation slides are stored in “slide packs” that are attached to the inside of the aircraft door. When the door is armed, part of the slide that is attached to what is called a “girt bar” is hooked into the floor of the aircraft. As a result, if the door is opened when armed, the slide falls from the slide pack in the door while still connected to the girt bar and the aircraft, and would normally automatically inflate. In this case, the slide fell out, but malfunctioned and did not inflate. In real life, it was inflated manually by the flight attendant. In this scene, no slide is visible at all until it appears between shots and starts inflating. See more »
