Transcript for Captain Sully speaks out 10 years after 'Miracle on the Hudson'
Now to an event so many of us will never forget. I saw wit my own eyes. What became known as the miracle on the Hudson. A passenger jet making an emergency landing on the Hudson river. Hard to believe that was ten years ago. Amy wept back to the river with sully. Sully. That's right. Ten years. It's been a decade. I visited the scene of the miracle with the pan who made it all happen. Guiding that plane down into the water and saving every single person on board. Who can forget that day? We can't do it. We're gonna be in the Hudson. Reporter: The incredible emergency landing of U.S. Air ways flight 1349 after hitting a flock of geese. There's an airplane down in the Hudson river right off Manhattan. Reporter: 155 soul on board all surviving. Including a 9-month-old baby. Robin robs witnessed the krsh from her apartment overlooking the Hudson. It was just a -- an amazing landing. The fuselage never broke up. Anything like that. Reporter: It became known as the miracle on the Hudson. The miracle worker, Chesley Sullenberger. Famously known as sully. The hero pilot who lapded the plane in the middle of the river between New York City and new Jersey. This was your landing strip? We made a runway out of a river. By doing that, I knew we had the best chance of saving every life. We would avoid the possibility of a post-crash fire. Reporter: Just a few hundred feet from where the plane crashed with the ferries behind us, sully refrekted on the tenth anniversary. I knew immediately it would be a life-changing event for everyone on the plane and their families. The first New York waterway ferry arrived 3:35 after we touched the water. That was critical on such a cold day, when many people had gotten wet and hypothermia can kill in my opinion outs. Reporter: The team work of the passengers, crews, only have tears and first responders says a lot about our world. When we work together. When we remember our common humanity, there is little we cannot accomplish. Reporter: Later today, sully will reunite with many of those passengers on board. Tomorrow is the anniversary. There will be a ceremony and a get-together Ford crew. I'll get to share an exclusive interview with sully and some of the passengers tomorrow. I'm letting to Charlotte right now. They have the plane in the aviation museum will for people to witness and see the miracle itself. The passengers who kept in touch -- I thought that was your phone again. The passengers have kept in touch with him over the years. He and his wife. They have shared with them births and graduations they wouldn't have been able to experience. It gives you chills, doesn't it? I'll never forget being in my apartment. You were just looking out the window. I just happened to be looking out. I was on the 11th floor. I was the second caller to 911. It was an emergency landing. Not a crash landing. He used that river as his runway. Amazing. Incredible. Can't believe it's been ten year. Let's get to rob.
