Hero of the Hudson

Hats off to Chesley B Sully Sullenberger III, of California. Mr Sullenberger landed the Airbus A320 into the river shortly after taking off from La Guardia airport in New York. Both of the plane's engines were damaged after it hit a flock of geese. Of the 150 passengers and five crew on board Flight 1549, one person suffered two broken legs, but there were no other reports of serious injuries.
