We got a sneak peak on Wednesday because my wife works for the Carolina Aviation Museum where the plane is now housed. If you're ever in Charlotte it is worth seeing. A couple interesting facts they didn't really mention:

Skyles was actually Pilot In Command of the flight. They didn't drive that home but during the movie you hear Sully say "I've got the stick" (or something like that)- meaning he is taking over the plane at that point.

The plane that ended up in the Hudson was not the plane normally designated for that route. The normal plane wasn't equipped with life rafts as it wasn't a flight over water.

Sully had to land the plane at 11 degrees. They say 10 or 12 degrees would have severely damaged the plane.

I thought the movie was really good as well. Worth seeing.
