I certainly applaude this mans skills and efforts in landing the plane but think equal recognition should have been given to Jeff Skiles the co-pilot. They work as a team and if the first officer hadn't been doing what he was doing Capt. Sullenberger couldn't have been doing what he was doing. Both men should have been at the Inauguration, on tv etc. they are both Heros.
