    Why do they always have this need to bring out the so called 'experts' when an incident occurs?

    Well, if any of the 'experts' actually are, I'd say that Sullenberger is.

    On making an unpowered landing onto a river maybe.

    Why can't everyone just wait until the investigation is complete to find out what really happened?

    Why would Sully not be an expert?

    I think, if parts of the tail of the plane were found in the water, it's pretty safe to say the pilot landed short of the runway. Most, if not all plane mishaps (except for acts of terrorism) are multi-causal, but my money is on pilot error. It's human nature to question and speculate about plane crashes, because they are relatively rare and miraculous when so many survive such a dangerous event. I fly pretty frequently. I'd like answers sooner rather than later, and in this country we're allowed to ask and speculate, thank God.

    Sully is not an expert on crash landing against a seawall, or coming in short of a runway. He landed, wheels down, on a landing strip made of water. Amazing, but not a crash.

    And the reason for the difference? Over the years there have been many instances of large passenger planes terminating flight on water. Except for Sea Planes some years ago, it is hard to remember when any pilot other than Sully got it perfect (plane largely intact, with no fatalities).

    I like how Sully refused to speculate and kept shooting down the reporter's attempts to do so. Good job, Sully.

    Not until all of the investigation is complete will anyone know all of the answers, I hate listening to “what I think happened” reports.
