"Miracle on the Hudson" Capt. Sully's first flight in a military jet, a Lockheed T-33 'Shooting Star'. Freshman year at the USAFA. Great pic! May all airline pilots be like him :-D
Helen Richey (1909 – 1947) was a pioneering female aviator and the first woman to be hired as a pilot by a commercial airline in the United States. Richey also was the first woman sworn in to pilot air mail and one of the first female flight instructors.
Todd Beamer, passenger on United Flight 93, a plane overtaken by the 9/11 attack highjackers. He communicated with officials on the ground and helped lead a group of passengers to take over the plane. It eventually crashed in Pennsylvania. Last audible words: "Are you guys ready? Let's roll."
An American Hero, who by the looks of his shirt, has a great sense of humor too. Marine Cpl. Todd Nicely, quadruple amputee. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
