Do you remember when in 2009 US airways had to conduct a ditching in the Hudson River near midtown Manhattan due to a flock of birds causing a loss of power to both engines? The aircraft reached a maximum altitude of about 3200 feet before it began to descend. After ditching, all five crew members and 150 passengers evacuated the aircraft. Pranas Drulis, ATPL Integrated student at Baltic Aviation Academy (Vilnius, Lithuania), tried to execute the same situation in Airbus A320 Full Flight Simulator.
