USAirways Pilot a hero
Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, III is a captain for a major U.S. airline with over 40 years of flying experience. A former U.S. Air Force (USAF) fighter pilot, he has served as an instructor and Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) safety chairman, accident investigator and national technical committee member. He saved the lives of all 155 passengers on the Airbus A320 aircraft when birds hit the engine and rendered the plane severely damaged. He crash landed the plane into the Hudson River and all survived. Kudos Man! Am a faithful USAirways client and will remain one.
