    You wonder how much of the rest of his interviews are such embellished versions of events. Haha

    My previous reply, first sentence.

    Bashing Hollywood, not you.

    I think he might have exaggerated a touch about a total engine shutdown and restart though.
    So, a routine compressor stall, fuel dump and a return. The sudden level-off must have seemed like both engines went silent. I have no doubt this is terrifying for the pax, especially at night, but Leo doth exaggerate a bit.

    As do the emergency services that dispatched the equivalent of a two-alarm fire to meet them. Probably cuz Leo was on board.

    Sounds like a good movie script from the imaginary world of an actor...

    Perhaps there's a private pilot with MSFS experience to come to the cockpit to land the plane?

    started a topic Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Delta Airlines

    Leonardo DiCaprio vs. Delta Airlines

    Leo related this "near-death" experience to Vanity Fair.

    “I was in business class, and an engine blew up in front of my eyes,” the actor says of a past flight to Russia. “It was right after ‘Sully’ Sullenberger landed in the Hudson. I was sitting there looking out at the wing, and the entire wing exploded in a fireball. I was the only one looking out at the moment this giant turbine exploded like a comet. It was crazy. They shut all the engines off for a couple of minutes, so you’re just sitting there gliding with absolutely no sound, and nobody in the plane was saying anything. It was a surreal experience. They started the engines back up, and we did an emergency landing at JFK.”
    Anyone have any idea what he's talking about?
