THE PLANK JANUARY 15, 2009

Dep't Of Awesome

Check out Chesley Sullenberger III, pilot of that crashed US Airways plane:

With water seeping into the plane, Sullenberger, a former fighter
pilot, walked up and down the center aisle twice to make sure nobody
was left before he joined the exodus from the jet, the mayor said.

"He was the last one off the plane," Bloomberg said.
