US Airways 1549 passenger: 3 things I learned whily my plane crashed

We’ve heard a lot about US Airways flight 1549 that crashed into the Hudson River two years ago. Captain Chesley Sullenberger has received many accolades, including being named our “aviator of the year” in 2009, passengers recounted what they experienced on that chilly January day, and the Airbus A320 in question is planned to be exhibited in North Carolina.

But what were some of the long-term affects?

In this video from TED, Ric Elias, who is the CEO of a marketing services company, recounts what he has learned and how his outlook on life has changed since sitting in seat 1B on US1549.

    Good catch, although that’s what Ric reports. Maybe he was in 1C?
