Pilot Chesley Sullenberger

After both engines went out on US Airways A230 bound for Charlotte, North Carolina, pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger had very few options of what to do. The lives of all 155 passengers rested in his hands. Thinking quickly, he directed the jetliner toward the Hudson River. In order to safely land the plane on the river, Sullenberger had to hit the water at an angle less than 10 degrees. Unbelievably, the cool-headed pilot was able to perfectly land the plane and all the passengers survived.
