They even mislabeled it! Clearly that isn't an "airline".

Captain "Sully" Sullenberger became quite a folk hero after this incident.

Climbing out of La Guardia, he flew through a flock of Canadian Geese and lost both engines.
When the control tower tried to divert him to New Jersey, he calmly advised them he had zero thrust, and had chosen to set 'her' down in the Hudson River. There must have been a lot of befuddled onlookers watching that big bird splashing down.

I attribute his success not only to his earlier Air Force training, but that he was also a glider instructor.

After all 155 passengers & crew walked (waded?) away from it, his response was

One way of looking at this might be that for 42 years, I've been making small, regular deposits in this bank of experience, education and training. And on January 15 the balance was sufficient so that I could make a very large withdrawal.

Sully made a huge withdrawal on that day for sure. And 155 people made huge deposits in their pants. Even still, I'd be pretty pumped to be alive, even if I had to wade to shore with a wet turd in my drawers.
