It’s Already Been 5 Years. . .

As your typical nervous flyer, I’ve always looked up to airline pilots as true professionals at what they do. With that being said, I can’t believe it’s already been 5 years since US Airways Flight 1549 landed on the Hudson River in NYC. I remember sitting here at the radio station watching the news reports and observing each and every one of those passengers walk out onto the wings of the jet and eventually into one of the ferry boats.

All 155 passengers survived this accident thanks to the absolutely perfect landing by Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and his top-notch crew on board the Airbus A320.

Looking back at the “Miracle on the Hudson” five years later, it makes me truly appreciate what airline pilots and their crews do on a daily basis. On my flight back from London recently, we took off from Heathrow in a horrendous rain and wind storm and couldn’t get over how much the weather could affect a giant aircraft like a Boeing 777! Once we got through the storms and continued with our climb, I thought, “wow, these guys are amazing”

So..the next time you decide to play with your hand held device during taxi on departure, remember that they aren’t showing the safety video to take up time…there’s a good reason.
