Flying over the mighty George Washington Bridge earlier today – this is the same air space where Captain C.B. Sully Sullenberger made the good call to go for a landing in the Hudson River, all 155 passengers and crew saved, bravo Captain Sullenberger!!
Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger, III (born January 23, 1951)[1] is a retired airline captain, aviation safety expert and accident investigator, best-selling author, speaker and consultant. Sullenberger was hailed as a national hero in the United States when he successfully executed an emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan, New York City, after the aircraft had been disabled by striking a flock of Canada geese during its initial climb out of LaGuardia Airport on January 15, 2009. All of the 155 passengers and crew aboard the aircraft survived.

Sullenberger is an international speaker on airline safety[2] and has helped develop new protocols for airline safety. Sullenberger served as the co-chairman of the EAA’s Young Eagles youth introduction-to-aviation program from 2009 to 2013.[3] Sullenberger retired from US Airways after 30 years as a commercial pilot on March 3, 2010.[4] In May of the following year, Sullenberger was hired by CBS News as a News Aviation and Safety Expert.
