Captain Chesley Sullenberger


Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger
In one fateful day, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger went from a veteran airline pilot and devoted husband and father to a national hero. His emergency landing of USAirways Flight 1549 in New York's Hudson River became the stuff of legend but Captain Sullenberger credits the heroic act to a love of learning, attention to detail and devotion to the passengers in his charge. Captain Sullenberger is flying to Charlotte to sign his book, Highest Duty, but first he joins guest host Chris Clackum to talk about his life, his passion for flying and his remarkable career.
