"Hero" is Too Small a Word

Kudos to Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger and the rest of the crew of the U.S. Airways jet that landed in the Hudson River today!

Landing the airplane perfectly so that all 155 passengers are alive and mostly uninjured is an accomplishment we can all hope we could aspire to if called upon.

Getting all of the passengers to safety showed that every single crew member knew his job and executed flawlessly.

Congratulations to everyone whose preparation, vigilance and hard work contributed to this "miracle!"


  1. I couldn't have said it better.

    It's what I thought too.

  2. It's always nice to read these kinds of stories. This could have been such a horrible disaster if not for the pilot and the crew who I am sure kept everyone calm.

  3. Yes, it's great to have something wonderful in the news for a change!

    Thanks Jen and Laane!

  4. This was a great story, indeed. We're beaten to death with so much bad news, that the rare bit of good stuff that comes along is appreciated.

    Great pilot, indeed!

  5. I was thrilled to see the entire crew out on the field at the Super Bowl. They deserve every bit of recognition they get!

  6. I didn't see the Super Bowl. That would have made it worth watching if I'd known! :-)

    It is SO COOL to hear good news for a change.

    Thanks for the comments!
