"Miracle On The Hudson" Pilots Back In Flight

The "Miracle on the Hudson" pilots are reuniting in the cockpit for the first time for a flight out of New York.

Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger and 1st Officer Jeffrey Skiles will pilot a flight on Thursday from LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, N.C.

Charlotte also was the destination of the disabled plane they ditched in the Hudson River on Jan. 15. They saved the lives of all 155 people on board.

Thursday's flight will be Sullenberger's first as a US Airways captain since the incident. Skiles has been back flying with US Airways since April.

US Airways announced Monday that Sullenberger will be making regular flights and supervising other pilots as part of its safety management team.
