One of my hobbies above traveling and writing letters is reading books. I love books about other cultures, past events and psychological ones.
Finally I’m finished with the school, I graduated on last Wednesday, so finally I can read books, which are not course books of course 😀 When I was in the USA this summer and was waiting at the JFK airport, I decided to visit one of the shops to spend my time, as I arrived too early to the airport. I was walking, walking and walking, and found this beauty:
The book is written by Chesley B. Sullenberger, who was the pilot of Flight 1549, which landed on Hudson River, in Manhattan on 15th January, 2009 after a bird strike. Fortunately everyone survived the crash, thanks to the good pilots and stewardesses.
So I decided to continue and finish this book, as although I started reading it in September, I didn’t reach too far, as I needed to start studying.
Sullenberger writes about his own life (how he started the aviation, how he liked the military, how he got to know his wife, etc.), his family, and he sometimes describe the day of the crash on Hudson.
The story has a movie as well starring by Tom Hanks. It’s name “Sully”. Unfortunately I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m excited to find it in Hungary.
