Brace brace brace! Heads down! Stay down!
When Sully is ditching the aircraft on the Hudson, he is shown to be looking out the front cockpit window and seeing the river approaching. In reality, he had the aircraft at quite a steep pitch, so though he could have seen the river approaching out his side window, out the front window he would have only seen sky.
Photos of the real plane and rescue are shown during the credits. They are followed by a brief video with real people from that day including the passengers and Captain Sullenburger.
