Captain Chelsey B. “Sully” Sullenberger, a former USAF F-4 Pilot, deadsticked an A320 Airbus into the Hudson River after he lost power to both engines, apparently thanks to birds. Birds? Sheesh.
More from 24Dash.com:
Mr Sullenberger, 57, has been hailed as a hero for managing to bring the plane down with no loss of life to passengers on US Airways Flight 1549.
No loss of life. Amazing. Good job, Captain Sully. Good job. A hero, indeed.
