We Add a Hero to the List

Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III is a true hero. The pilot of US Airways flight 1549 saved countless lives today by landing a crippled commerical airplane safely in the Hudson River, where everyone on board was evacuated safely. It was an amazing, skilled, heroic act by a man who apparently has quite a history.
How fortunate that the man behind the wheel when that flight hit a flock of geese had 40 years of flying experience and was a former US Air Force fighter pilot. The entire staff of that flight should also be commended.
