Flight 1549 posts

Flight 1549 First Officer Jeff Skiles is scheduled to speak at the annual Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet, which commemorates the 106th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first powered flight at Kitty Hawk, NC.

The banquet is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and will be held December 18 in the EAA AirVenture Museum’s Eagle Hangar in Oshkosh, WI.

Skiles and Capt Sullenberger are co-chairmen of EAA’s Young Eagles youth aviation education program – the previous chairman was Harrison Ford. Don’t think I ever posted that. I’ll look for it in the drafts.
