Sullenberger was scheduled to appear with Sen. Charles Schumer on Monday morning at Clarence Town Hall, not far from the site of the crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 in the Buffalo suburb.
In his new role as Aviation and Safety Expert for the network, Sullenberger will provide analysis of aviation safety, contributing to all CBS News broadcasts and platforms.
The plane whose splash landing was called “The Miracle on the Hudson” is set for its final destination: a North Carolina aviation museum.
Two years ago, US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing in the Hudson River. On Saturday, some of the survivors took time to remember that fateful day.
The US Airways jet that made a near-miraculous landing on the Hudson River in 2009 will finally reach its destination, but as a museum piece rather than in service.
