I have been in awe of Capt. Sullenburger ever since this happened. Most people
can only dream of being that competent at _anything_. I mean, not one mistake.
Not one. The man is a hero. He defines the word. And the rest of those
involved were also pretty awesome. Congratulations to everyone involved, all
the way to the ferry boat captains and crews. Absolutely amazing.
What a dumbshit. Hero?? Hardly.
That's what pilots do. They fly planes.
His own self preservation was a factor too.
Gees. Everybody that does their jobs nowdays
is a "hero".
Just like everything is "amazing" and "awesome".
They may fly them and practice emergency procedures until they can do
them in their sleep, but there is no way to avoid calling what he did
less than miraculous. There is no simulator where pilots practice
crashing into a river. He only had one shot to get this right and he
wrote the book on how to do it in just minutes...while saving over 150
