I have read a number of times the CVR transcript of US Airways 1549. Just before impact, they say:
we're gonna brace
I know what is the brace position for passengers, but I'm not sure about how cockpit crews would adopt it. For Airbus aircraft (as this flight was) I think it could be done more or less the same way as passengers, but what about in Boeing or other yoke-equipped cockpits? Wouldn't the brace position interfere with critical flight controls?
