Sully describes 'shocking' thuds of geese

Hero pilot Capt. Chesley Sullenberger and the crew of Flight 1549 are getting keys to the city from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The City Hall ceremony Monday caps off a weekend of adulation and interviews. Sullenberger ditched his jetliner in the Hudson River when a flock of birds disabled his engines.

On Monday, he made the rounds of morning television news shows.

On the CBS "Early Show," Sullenberger said he felt that there was too much attention on him, and "not enough on the team."

On ABC's "Good Morning America," some passengers thanked Sullenberger for saving their lives. Others said there was no panic because of the pilot's calming voice.

On Sunday, on CBS' "60 Minutes," the steadfast pilot described lying awake at nights second-guessing his performance - even though his skillful flying saved the lives of everyone on board.
