Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger Speaks About Air France Disaster
After the recovery of the black box from Air France Flight 447 showed that pilot error was to blame for the crash, Capt. Sullenberger told CBS that pilots needed to be trained better so they could internalize their skills.
He also recently provided some perspective for journalists when news of air traffic controllers falling asleep on the job went national by advocating against proposed cuts to the Federal Aviation Administration's budget.
Even the plane that Captain Sullenberger manhandled to a water landing has become an icon: The pockmarked vessel is set to arrive next week at the Carolinas Aviation Museum near Charlotte. Many of the plane's passengers (the bulk of whom are from the Charlotte-area) will be on hand with the captain himself, who one imagines will not have to buy his own drinks.
