That’s what they called the incident when a very savvy pilot named Sully Sullenberger, and his crew, safely landed an airplane with 155 passengers and crew, on the Hudson River. That was SEVEN YEARS AGO. Time flies, doesn’t it? There were many interesting aspects of this “miracle” when you consider all that was involved. First of all, when a pilot trains in flight simulators, they can’t practice landing on water. Sully said: “We had 208 seconds to solve a problem for which we had never specifically trained.” He was speaking of his crew members who worked as a TEAM. He gave credit to that crew because they had worked together to deliver this airplane full of people to the surface of the water intact. He mentioned a “shared sense of responsibility among the team” which produces a better outcome. So the entire crew were ALL heroes, according to Sully and he's right, of course. It took teamwork. There were 155 happy people that day when they were rescued from that airplane sitting on the water. What do you think? Picture of the Hudson River by Pixabay

Yes, it was, of course, all over the news at that time. What an amazing story it was.
