An Evening with Captain "Sully" Sullenberger
Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 8:00pm
Captain “Sully” Sullenberger is a renowned safety expert, speaker and author who rose to prominence after his heroic actions during the “Miracle on the Hudson.” Shortly after takeoff from New York’s LaGuardia Airport on January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 struck a flock of Canada geese and lost all engine power. Capt. Sullenberger and fellow pilot First Officer Jeffrey Skiles safely executed an emergency landing on the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew on board.
