We Add a Hero to the List

Posted by Tony & Cheri on January 16, 2009

Chesley B. 'Sully' Sullenberg, a true heroChesley 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.

Captain Sullenberg, if you ever read this: you’re now on on our list of People Who Can Stay for Free at the Luna Blue Hotel. May your 15 minutes of fame last the rest of your life. You deserve it.
