Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger will reunite on the Hudson River today with many of the passengers and crew from US Airways Flight 1549, one year after a catastrophic bird strike forced the plane into the river. The assembled survivors will thank the first responders and boat captains who helped rescue all 155 people aboard the plane before it slipped beneath the icy water. A ferry will take the group to the spot where the plane landed, and at 3:31 p.m., the moment of impact one year ago, the passengers and crew are scheduled to toast what has become known as the "Miracle on the Hudson."
