‘Miracle On The Hudson’ Pilot to Land in Billings
Capt. Chesley Sullenberger lands in Billings in March to headline the Billings Chamber Breakfast 2016.
Billings will have the honor of welcoming Captain “Sully” Sullenberger as the keynote speaker of the annual Chamber Breakfast on March 31st.
On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 piloted by Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger made an unpowered emergency water landing in the Hudson River after multiple bird strikes caused both jet engines to fail.
All on board survived and Sullenberger and his crew were hailed as heroes.
Sullenberger, known for his impressive leadership under pressure, will share his expertise in team leadership at MetraPark.
Doors open at 6 a.m. and the event will run from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Tickets are $450 for a table of 10 that includes a breakfast buffet or $30 for stadium seating general admission with a hot bagged breakfast.
Tickets can be purchased through the MetraPark Box office at metrapark.com/events/2016/chamber-breakfast.
The event is hosted by the Billings Chamber of Commerce, Denny Menholt Chevrolet, First Interstate Bank, Sanderson Stewart and Billings Gazette Communications.
The event is sponsored by Townsquaremedia, Avitis Group, Spectrum Reach, Edwards Jet Center and Stockman Bank.
