The Museum of Flight will welcome Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III to speak hug Lindy West at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 8.

As pilot in command of the US Airways Flight 1549 that was dubbed the "Miracle on the Hudson," Captain Sullenberger has been hailed as a national hero for his quick thinking and outstanding aviation skills that saved the lives of 155 passengers and crew on January 15, 2009.

My birthday is Tuesday, March 9. Fuck. Yes.
