US Airways “Sully” Sullenberger to Speak at HIMSS

As always, on the weekend I write a little less focused and intense content. Well, I’d say that writing about the US Airways pilot “Sully” Sullenberger on an EMR site is way out there. However, he’ll be a keynote speaker at HIMSS and the guy is a hero. So of course I find the guy incredibly interesting. Plus, someone sent me this video rendering of “Sully” landing Flight 1549 in the Hudson and I gained even more respect.

The first few minutes of the video are slow, but then it’s absolutely intense hearing the radio communication and the communication between the pilot and co-pilot. Wow!

More of my HIMSS plans and meetup info on Monday.
