The crew of Flight 1549 – the plane that made an emergency landing in New York’s Hudson River on the 15th January – appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday to tell their remarkable story how they managed to get everyone off the flight safely without any fatalities.
Captain Chesley Sullenberger and his crew injected some humour into then appearance though. When Dave asked him if the plane was designed to float on water, he said “we were very glad that this one remained intact and did” and when talking about a passenger who opened one of the doors of the plane letting in water he said “”I think it was Steve Martin who did that” (referring to this).
