Friday, First Officer Jeff Skiles talked to Mayo Clinic employees about his experience on Jan.15, 2009, when he and Sully made an emergency landing in the Hudson River, saving all 155 people on board.

"I am probably very very cautious compared to most pilots, but that’s actually good because caution is something that keeps you safe.” said Skiles.
