One year ago right now, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger landed his crippled plane in the Hudson River and everyone on board survived.
There’s a tour boat filled with surivors out there now, and they’re drinking toasts as the boat sounds its horn. A nearby tug is spewing celebratory plumes of red, white and blue.
Goosebumps here. Hard to believe it’s been a year. Still hard to believe what the right man with the right training in the right place at the right time was able to do.
Here’s to you, again, Capt. Sullenberger!
