Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III

Don’t be surprised if, in another four years, all the little boys in kindergarten are named Sully. That would be in honor of US Airways pilot Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III, who landed his bird-crippled flight 1549 on the Hudson River just over a year ago. Nobody was injured, thanks to his preparedness and quick thinking, and the story made him an international hero. Since then, there have been books, TV specials, and countless talk-show appearances. None of which, remarkably, have appeared to change the guy. Tonight Sullenberger will discuss the “Miracle on the Hudson,” talk about aviation safety, and perhaps sign copies of his memoir, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters. And another thing? Thanks to Sully, moustaches are now officially cool again. T. BOND
