Captain “Sully” Sullenberg, whose heroic landing of a US Airways jet in the Hudson River captivated the nation last winter, has retired after 30 years of flying.
In an age where there’s plenty to by cynical about, Captain Sully’s skill, professionalism and humility were absolutely inspiring.
I remember watching that footage over and over and being so proud to be part of the same country (heck, the same specie) that produced such an incredible hero.
Best of luck, Sully. And thanks for the memory.
