‘Miracle on the Hudson’ pilot stepping down from international post

WASHINGTON/MONTREAL (Reuters) – C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger, who rose to fame as the commercial pilot who safely landed an Airbus A320 on New York’s Hudson River in 2009 after hitting a flock of geese, said on Thursday he would be stepping down as U.S. envoy to a key international aviation group on July 1.

Sullenberger was confirmed in December as U.S ambassador to the International Civil Aviation Organization based in Montreal. He said in a statement that “relinquishing my role” was not an easy decision.
