    Hero Pilot Sully Breaks Silence

    The hero pilot who safely landed a plane of U.S. Airways in the Hudson has finally broken his silence and said he felt "calm on the outside, in turmoil" when he realized that it would have to splash land in the river. 

    Sullenberger Chesley, known as Sully, described the moment when he lost both engines when the aircraft struck a flock of birds after taking off from LaGuardia Airport on 15 January as "surreal" and "shocking," said ESPN's Rick Reilly. 
    "It was very quiet as we worked, my co-pilot and me," said Sully, in his first interview since the accident. "We were a team. But to have zero thrust from the engines is shocking - the silence. " 
    The 57-year, pilot rescued 154 passengers and crew of flight when he set in 1549 in the Hudson River, after the aircraft lost power. He said he felt "calm on the outside, in turmoil," as he was at the helm as the aircraft descended towards the river. 
    Lori Sullenberger wife said the couple spent evenings opening fan mail. 
    "It allows us both to express the emotion," she told ESPN. "We both sat down and cried."
