On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing into the Hudson River at full capacity with 150 passengers on board. The frightful event made breaking news all over the country. Sully’s Flight Experience 360° by CNN and Warner Bros. presents to everyone else in the world a reenactment of what the captain and crew endured on that miraculous day, using a helicopter to capture stunning 360°video while flying over the actual GPS coordinates of the path taken by Flight 1549.
Multiple 360° cameras were used to provide viewers with an aerial virtual reality experience. The video begins with the look of clear skies and hearing the pilot’s testimonies of how the emergency started. It continues with real recordings of conversations between the pilots and the air traffic control tower as they decide what the appropriate state of action should be from there. When Captain Sully responded, “We’re gonna be in the Hudson,” you hear the confusion of the control tower agent as he asked for a repeat. From there, viewers are left to “brace for impact”. I found this clip very appropriate for VR – it was definitely very experience-driven. It placed viewers into the eyes of Captain Sully as he steered the plane into the Hudson River in a state of emergency. The visual along with the audio allows viewers to get a sense for just how high the risk of this decision was for everyone involved. I personally enjoyed being able to watch from the back of the plane while making the U-turn as well as the plane’s landing gear nearing the edge of the water as it made its way onto the Hudson River.
CNN also added more to the emotional aspect by incorporating testimonies from real survivors of Flight 1549 as well as the various media coverage of the breaking news. Below shows an image of news reporting the voice of Mary Snow, a passenger of the flight stating that the “plane started filling with water quickly.”
Being such a well-made video, Sully’s Flight Experience 360° was tied to the release of the Warner Bros. movie Sully – providing inspiration for viewers to watch the movie and learn more about the historical event. It certainly left me with the feeling of wanting more. The video was posted on Facebook by CNN as well as YouTube later by Courageous Studios, with both platforms bringing over 4 million views. Sully’s Flight Experience 360° brought the film a lot of momentum with 3.9 million views just in the first few days and grossing over 240 million worldwide.
