The USAirways pilot who miraculously landed his jet in the Hudson River last week with no loss of life will be a guest at Barack Obama's inauguration, along with his family and crew.
Obama told reporters today that he spoke with Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, who told him, "Me and my crew, we were just doing our job.'
"And it made me think, if everybody did their job -- whatever that job was -- as well as that pilot did his job, we'd be in pretty good shape," Obama said.
