Comparing this to Sully's flight

I think it does no good to compare these two flights, even though Cap't. Sullenburger did display great airmanship in the face of no-time-to-think.

Besides the aforementioned A/P issue, Sully had perfect visibility in the daytime, so situational awareness was very good. On AF447, nobody could see nuttin', much less the horizon. Not to say that training wasn't deficient; it clearly was.
