Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger who safely landed US Airways Flight 1549 into the Hudson River last year as well as flight attendant Doreen Welsh are retiring. US Airways CEO Doug Parker said, "I am extremely proud of Captain Sullenberger and Doreen for their quick thinking and courageous actions on January 15, 2009. They exemplify the professionalism and training US Airways' more than 10,000 pilots and flight attendants demonstrate thousands of times every day across our airline. We will miss them and thank them for all they have given to our customers during their years of service with our airline." Sullenberger, whose return to flying last fall was a big event, had been with US Airways since 1980 and Welsh was with the airline since 1970.
