    Mayor Lauds Pilot, Urges Caution On Crash Cause

    Mayor Lauds Pilot, Urges Caution On Crash Cause


    Bloomberg Lauds Hero US Airways Pilot, Urges Caution On Crash Cause - wcbstv.com


    The 57-year-old Sullenberger, from Danville, Calif., is a 29-year US Airways veteran and a former U.S. Air Forcer fighter pilot who flew F-4 aircraft. He is president of Safety Reliability Methods, a California safety consulting firm.

    "We have a heroic pilot who saved himself and 154 other passengers. We've had a Miracle on 34th Street and now I believe we've had a miracle on the Hudson," Gov. David Paterson said at a joint press conference with Bloomberg on Thursday evening.

    "This was a potential tragedy that became one of the most spectacular days in the history of New York City's agencies."

    Paterson credited N.Y. Waterways, Circle Line, the Coast Guard and various city agencies for assisting in the rescue operation.

    Bloomberg said the Sullenberger's actions will not be forgotten any time soon.

    "It would appear the pilot did a masterful job. He walked the plane twice after everyone else got off. A passenger said he was the last one up the aisle and that there was no one behind him," Bloomberg said. "This pilot did a wonderful job and it would appear that all 155 got out safely."

    This man is a true hero.

    Absolutely.

    All praise in all forms to this very brave and compassionate man. Not one trip down the isle to check for someone left behind but two trips. Not a home run hitter or a handsom quaterback or rock star, just a great guy.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    what amazed me the most, and this was amazing.....was the fact that the flight crew, captain, and co-captain had things under control, not one of the 155 people on board panicked, but every one in this was terrific, the harbor patrol, ferry operators and coast guard, without any of them this would have been a tragedy in my opinion.

    Ten bucks says the crew is the type to shrug off the praise and say something like "I was just doing my job" or "It was the right thing to do".
