When US Air Flight 1549 hit some birds and lost power nigh upon 15 months ago, hero captain Sully Sullenberger heroically landed in the Hudson River, saving all aboard. One minor quibble: he could have landed safely at the airport.
Ice-cold saintly hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger didn't blink after the engines on his plane failed, forcing him into a death-defying river landing. The passengers, on the other hand, were totally freaked the fuck out. Book excerpt, ho!
