The actual Airbus A320 involved in the incident was recovered from the Hudson and placed on display at the Carolina's Aviation Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte was the original destination for this flight. Footage shown during the credits, with the actual passengers and crew, was shot at the museum.
I'm hoping six months from now we'll just be laughing about how we got to meet David Letterman.
Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger: We're going on David Letterman?
Jeff Skiles: Yeah, right after the next NTSB interview. I'm guessing David's going to be slightly funnier.
When the actual incident is shown, as the plane is flying towards the Hudson and we see it passing by, the noise of the engines is clearly heard. But supposedly they are both dead so they should not be making noise.
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.
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video.
