Chesley Sullenberger is the pilot who successfully crash-landed his plane in the Hudson River after both engines were lost to goose strikes. His book, Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, is out today.
A while ago he was asked at which point he started praying as the plain went down. He said …
… that he was not praying, but rather, concentrating on how to land the plane safely.
The writeup of his book and the publicity does not talk about god or prayer, despite the fact that this event is constantly being called “The Miracle on the Hudson.”
Simply put, I would like to know if Sully is an atheist, or at least, if god is mentioned at all in this book.
