Stuff the US Air Pilot Could Have Said.

"I know I can speak for the entire crew when I tell you we were simply doing the job we were trained to do." -- US Airways pilot Chesley B. Sullenberger II, who brought 155 passengers to safety by landing his compromised jet in the Hudson River

You knew from the moment it happened that the headline on the post-rescue story was going to be "Hudson River pilot says he was just doing his job." But what if...

  • Hudson River pilot: 'Jesus, that was close, thank god I'm awesome'
  • Hudson River pilot thankful he happened to be sober on day of water landing
  • Hudson River pilot considered 'letting God take the wheel'
  • Hudson River pilot disappointed by 'ungrateful' passengers
  • Hudson River pilot: 'I thought that was a runway' (courtesy M.R.)

Any other ideas for stuff Sully could have said, just for the sake of being original?

I'm so glad someone else is still talking about this story. It makes me so happy. I've been kind of obsessed with it, to the point where I keep anxiously waiting for some unsavory details to surface about the pilot or his actions during the flight.

Anyway, here are a few more headline options for you.

As the plane began sinking, Sullenberger walked the aisle twice, looking for abandoned valuables and loose change...

"WTF? Why did those NY a-holes tell me to fly to Teterboro when I said we had a problem? I'm suing!"

I have no ideas to fulfill the request of the post, but I was very amused by your suggestions and those here in the comments.
