The man who landed on the Hudson

Chesley Sullenberger was the pilot of US Airways Flight 1549 which if you didn’t know was the plane that landed in the hudson river after take off and he is the reason that all 155 people survived that day. Sullenberger or “Sully” known by most was the captain of US Airways Flight 1549 taking off from LaGuardia Airport in New York but it never reached its intended destination. Shortly after the plane had taken off it ran into a flock of geese hitting the engines and loosing all power from them. Sully tried to turn back and land at the airport but he wasn’t going to risk the lives of the people on the ground so he decided to land the plane on the Hudson river. He was getting no thrust from his engines and wouldn’t be able to land anywhere else and he thought it was a good plan so he and his co-pilot went threw with it. They had to get the plane over the river, slow its speed and land it without hurting anyone, and thats exactly what they did. They successfully landed on river saving the lives or 155 passengers, in the end Captain Sullenberger was the last person to get off the plane after making sure all passengers and crew were off. In my opinion Captain Sullenberger is a great hero and was treated that way in the end but i’m sure that many people had no clue who he was and there are probably still people who don’t know who he is. Those 155 people could have faced a different fate but Captain Sullenberger saved their lives, thank you Sully.
