Flying over New York.
Used by NYPD. False registration N1589PD.
Registation N106US, c/n 1044 built in 1999. Same aircraft in other works at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Civil Fixed-Wing).
Portrayed by CGI for flight scenes.
Two former US Airways written off airframes (N648AW and N627AW) was bought and set to land and ditch action.
With a shot of the actual airframe in the Carolinas Aviation Museum during the credits.
Chesley Sullenberger has flashback of his first flight.
Registration NC787H, c/n 6002 built in 1930.
After seeing this plane, Sullenberger has flashback of his time in Army.
McDonnell Douglas F-4E-62-MC Phantom II s/n 74-1638 converted to QF-4E (serial AF-349 still visible on air conditioning system intake; 82nd Aerial Target Squadron badge visible). Tail code NA 68547 is false : Sully was pilot at 428th TFS, Nellis AFB but 66-8547 is linked in to a Cessna U-17A.
Continental Airlines and US Airways airliners seen at LaGuardia Airport (LGA/KLGA). The Continental airliners are actually CGI-ed over United Airlines planes, as Continental never operated the ERJ 170/175 or the 737 with scimitars.
Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.
A pair of McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom IIs can be seen on deck. This is inaccurate, as the museum only holds one Phantom II.
Left, a McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is seen from the rear. Others dark shapes in front of the lighted Intrepid castle are hard to identify.
In the foreground, we clearly guess the shape of USS Growler submarine with an erected SSM-N-8 Regulus (or Regulus I) on its deck.
Reg. N44V Douglas DC-3 Piedmont Airlines markings.
Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star BuNo 33866.
(background) Grumman F-14D Super Tomcat BuNo 161166 of VF-213.
