Whenever Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger sees the Hudson River and the skyline of Manhattan, he says his thoughts rewind to the bitterly cold day of Jan. 15, 2009, when he and co-pilot Jeff Skiles saved themselves and 153 passengers and crew members by pulling off one of the most miraculous emergency landings in the history of U.S. commercial aviation.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, airing on the 10th anniversary of the Hudson River splash landing of US Airlines Flight 1549, Sullenberger, now retired and 67, said the success of the life-saving feat required the heroic actions of more than just him and Skiles.
