Flight 1549 Heroes – Capt. Sullenberger, Flight Crew & First Responders

February 13, 2009

This is a Genuine G-Shot prepared in tribute to a true hero: Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, the Airbus 320 pilot who made the remarkable emergency miracle water landing on January 15,2009, of US Airway Flight 1549 on New York’s Hudson River in New York City and is posted today on Captain Sullenberger’s Birthday, Jan. 23, 2009.

I hope to meet you tomorrow when the City Council and Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich honors you as a home-town hero and present to you a special video DVD presentation in honor of all the Heroes of the Miracle of USA Airways Flight 1549, your well disciplined, trained, experienced and courageous Flight crew and all the “first responders”, public safety and Joe-citizen alike, as deep down we are all heroes and we know one when we see one.

Experience does indeed count, I am about the same age as Capt. Sully, with 27 years experience as a San Francisco 911 police, fire and medical dispatchers with the police department, City and County of SF Department of Emergency Management, and previous experience in public service as Mayor and Councilman of the City of San Bruno. I can also attest to the value of training, discipline and experience and the need to keep a cool head as so many lives depends upon our every move when seconds really do count and people must do the right thing.

Well done Captain Sully and all the heroes of Flight 1549 — We all have reason to be proud of you as a real American hero.

NEW YORK (AP) — A cool-headed pilot maneuvered his crippled jetliner over New York City and ditched it in the frigid Hudson River on Thursday; all 155 on board were pulled to safety as the plane slowly sank. It was, as New York Governor Patterson said, “a miracle on the Hudson.”

One victim suffered two broken legs, a paramedic said, but there were no other reports of serious injuries, just lots of wet socks, Capt. Sully walked the entire length of the sinking aircraft twice to make sures all passengers had safely exited the plane.

US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., struck a flock of birds after takeoff just minutes earlier at LaGuardia Airport, apparently disabling both engines.

The pilot, identified as Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III of Danville, Calif., “was phenomenal,” passenger Joe Hart said. “He landed it — I tell you what, the impact wasn’t a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you.”

“Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river,” he said.

No doubt due to his 40 years experience as a glider pilot.

Capt. Sully thank you for a job well done!
