Finally got a chance to see this famous aircraft.
Do you recognize it?
How about now? Here’s a hint: call sign: “Cactus 1549”
It’s US Airways Flight 1549 (Airbus-320) that departed LGA enroute to CLT with a double birdstrike dual engine failure.
It’s an amazing social media story I talk about in all my public information officer/social media classes.
No wait, it’s an amazing human story.
Solid training + years of experience = successful outcomes. Well done Capt Sullenberger – “Miracle on the Hudson” indeed.
