Sully heads to South Pacific

February 7, 2009 8:23:37 PM PST
The hero pilot who ditched his jetliner in the Hudson River without a single death took in a Broadway tale of bravery. Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, his wife and their two daughters attended Saturday night's performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific."

The tale of aviation, romance and military courage seems an appropriate choice for Sullenberger. He was named best aviator in his Air Force Academy class and served in the military from 1973 to 1980.

Sullenberger has received great acclaim for his skilled landing of US Airways Flight 1549 after birds apparently disabled both its engines Jan. 15. All 155 people on board survived.

Sullenberger and his fellow crew members are back in New York as part of a media blitz. He's appearing on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday.
