One highlight of the Super Bowl's pre-game was the appearance of the US Airways Flight 1549 crew: Pilot Captain Chesley Sullenberger, co-pilot Jeffrey Skiles, and flight attendants Doreen Walsh, Sheila Dail, and Donna Dent. The Flight 1549 was honored by the NFL and are getting ready for a media whirlwind; Newsday lists their upcoming appearances:

  • "60 Minutes" (Feb. 8): Katie Couric gets the first [Sullenberger] interview, portions of which could air on "The CBS Evening News" this week.
  • "The Early Show" (Feb. 9): [Sullenberger] talks to Harry Smith and will be joined by family and flight crew.
  • "Late Show With David Letterman" (Feb. 10): Sullenberger, First Officer Jeffrey Skiles, and flight attendants Donna Dent, Doreen Welsh and Sheila Dail will appear.

We wonder if Sully will stop by City Hall for his key to the City Hall—and whether he'll discuss Richard Branson's enthusiastic and generous offer to jump ship to VirginAir!
