Professors Dr. Deb Henneberry and Peter Russo were interviewed in the tower for the 10th anniversary of the Miracle on the Hudson, US Airways Flight 1549, and the man who delivered that miracle on January 15, 2009, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

“All around the world jets get hit by birds and most of the time it just results in blood on the wings and windshield, but no damage,” explained Peter Russo, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology.
