Danville Travel Guide
It's a Sully party! Flight 1549 captain Chesley S. "Sully" Sullenberger collected a key to his hometown of Danville, California this weekend in a small-town ceremony complete with marching band, color guard and bagpiper.
Sullenberger, who attended the Inauguration this past week on the President's request, is still waiting to tell his story until the National Transportation Safety Board has given him leave. But for his home of 13 years, he made a brief speech, declaring on behalf of his crew that "we were simply doing the jobs we were trained to do." Hopefully he'll have more details when he sits down with Katie Couric on "60 Minutes" next week.
Sullenberger finally made it home, and Flight 1549 passengers might even see their luggage return home this year: The unlucky suitcases have been removed from the plane and taken to a processing facility, where they have been frozen and then will be cleaned and dried. Well, at least passengers will have a really interesting souvenir.
