On January 15, 2009, a potential disaster turned into a heroic
display of skill and composure when Captain Chesley Burnett Sullenberger III safely landed the plane he was piloting on
New
York City
’s Hudson River after a bird strike caused its engines
to fail. David Paterson, governor of New York at the time, dubbed
the incident the “miracle on the Hudson.”

Sullenberger, a former Air Force fighter pilot with decades of
flying experience, received a slew of honors for his actions,
including an invitation to
Barack Obama’s presidential
inauguration and resolutions of praise from the U.S.
Congress.
