I concur

Regarding the plane that landed in the Hudson River this afternoon.

The Pilot of Flight 1549?

The one that just crashed landed into the Hudson?

I bow down to his greatness.

It's hard enough to land a plane when everything works. But to land a plane on an unstable medium when your engines have crapped out, and keep it in one piece? When both engines are disabled due to birds getting sucked in?

That's skill. That's one hell of a pilot. Those passengers are alive because he was able to keep that plane stable and going in the right direction.

Thank you, Mr Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger.
