One-Year Anniversary Of Miracle On The Hudson

Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, his crew and a number of survivors plan to gather Friday to revisit the site where he deftly set down US Airways Flight 1549 in the middle of the frigid Hudson River after striking geese and losing engine power. All 155 people aboard survived.

The group plans to gather in the morning for a breakfast to thank first responders and the Greater New York and Northern New Jersey chapters of the American Red Cross.

The survivors then will meet with the boat rescuers who helped them and board one of the passenger ferries that plucked them from the icy water.

They'll raise glasses in a toast to life at 3:31 p.m., the moment of impact.

Not all crew members or passengers are ready to relive that fateful day however, many are fearful of flying, or won't go near water.
