“Highest Duty” Gets My Highest Ratings

I got the audio book of Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters by Capt. Chesley Sullenberger, and I got it just in time for the first anniversary of his spectacular landing of a US Airways flight in Hudson (January 15th). So far the audio book is really great! Right now I’ve finished the first disc, which describes what sounds like an idyllic time in Captain Sullenberger’s life, when as a teenager he had affordable flight lessons in the wide-open, largely unregulated skies of North Texas in the late 1960s. I’ve always wanted to fly and can only imagine what a fantastic experience that must’ve been for a young person. The disc also mentioned how the Captain packed a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich for work the day before his famous landing….because the airlines don’t give the flight staff meals anymore. Meals are only for passengers in first class.
