Basically the movie just had things in it I didn't believe, or that caused me to shake my head. First of all why did Sully, a commercial airline pilot, who has a job that makes a lot of money, would not be able to support his wife and kids, if he was never going to be able to fly another plane again? I mean what has he been wasting all his money on?
The movie never says, so it feels like it was thrown in there for the sake of forced drama.
He also says that if they conclude that he would have made it to an airport, that they will take his pension away, but that's true, and the airline has no actual legal authority to do that.
So how much of this movie was made up for drama sake? I know in a movie you have to make things up but it seems to me that this stretches beyond the realm of believability as to how being a pilot works.
I don't know anything about flying planes but my dad does and he said that some of the flight science in the movie is complete Hollywood BS as well. But cannot comment there as much. But I was wondering, how much was made up when it comes to plans, airlines, and pensions, and Sully not having any money to support himself if, he had to loose his job, even though, he's a friggin' commercial pilot. Was he in a lot of debt?
