Should have been the "Sullenberger TROPHY" of course  :embarrassed:

Now can we have a volunteer to make the 150 r/c model passengers??   {-)

The photo of all the passengers standing on the wings brought tears to my eyes. I have since read the pilot's cv on "the smoking gun". Apparently he spends a lot of time updating the airline's guide to the taxiways to the gates at all the airports they use. He might not be the world's best drinking mate but when you need a man who can do things by the book.....

Does he get a presidential citation?
