All 155 occupants safely evacuated the airliner, which was still virtually intact though partially submerged and slowly sinking, and were quickly rescued by nearby watercraft. The entire crew of Flight 1549 was later awarded the Master's Medal of the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators. The award citation read, "This emergency ditching and evacuation, with the loss of no lives, is a heroic and unique aviation achievement." It has been described as "the most successful ditching in aviation history."

I am able to count maximum 55 people on the wings...are the other 100 passengers patiently waiting inside?

You gotta wonder what incentives were given to these dozens and dozens of people to act as 'survivors'. Money? The opportunity to be part of some fake "terror-preventing" scenario? It boggles the mind.
AND TOTALLY PISSES ME OFF.
Shall we understand that the passengers were not as many as we are said ?

If you've got any believable evidence that there were any passengers at all (or a plane) involved, please post it. It would be very much appreciated.

Gobsmacked! It took me a couple of minutes to notice which direction the dinghies were headed. Unbelievable
