ROBERT GIBBS: The president-elect told Captain Sullenberger how proud everyone was for the heroic and graceful job he had done in landing the damaged aircraft yesterday.

The president-elect also thanked his crew and the many people on the scene in New York for ensuring the safety of everyone on board the plane.

Captain Sullenberger and the Flight crew were invited to the Inauguration.

UPDATE: They had great seats. Present were Captain Sullenberger, First Officer Jeff Skiles and Flight Attendant Donna Dent. (pix)
