‘MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON’ LANDS IN LAKELAND 

 

     SUN ’n FUN CAMPUS, LAKELAND, FL. – (Feb. 5, 2010) – Jeff Skiles, First Officer on US Airways Flight 1549 that safely landed in the Hudson River one year ago last month, will be a featured participant at this year’s SUN ’n FUN International Fly-In & Expo, which will be held April 13 – 18 at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Florida.      Skiles, 49, was at the controls with Captain Chelsea Sullenberger when the Airbus A320 jet experienced multiple bird strikes and lost power to both engines shortly after taking off from New York City’s LaGuardia Airport on Jan. 15, 2009.  Unable to restart either engine, the Flight 1549 crew prepared its passengers for the only option available to them. As history has happily recorded, Captain Sullenberger safely landed the airplane on the waters of the Hudson River just west of midtown Manhattan.  Of the 150 passengers and five crew members on board, only a few received minor injuries.  There were no fatalities.
