Captain Sully Back At Your Service

Sully is back at US Airways. Nearly nine months after bringing his plane down in the Hudson river without any fatalities, the New York Post reports:

The Miracle on the Hudson pilot will... take on a new role as part of US Airways' flight operations safety management team, the airline announced today.

"The months since January 15 have been very full, and my family and I have had some unforgettable experiences," Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger said in a statement. "However, I have missed working with my colleagues at US Airways and I am eager to get back in the cockpit with my fellow pilots in the months ahead. In my new role, I will continue to be the same kind of advocate for aviation safety that I have been for several decades."
