Sully Sullenberger, the captain who skillfully landed US Airways flight 1549 on the Hudson River on Jan. 15, 2009, has become a household name.

After striking a flock of geese that disabled the engines, Sullenberger flew the plane like a giant glider and landed safely on the Hudson River saving the lives of 155 people on board. For 30 years, Sullenberger flew airplanes in an uneventful career. This one act made him a national hero.
