Posted:

DENISON, TX -- This week will mark five years since a big day for one pilot who is originally from Denison.

On January 15, 2009, US Airways Capt. Chesley Sullenberger landed Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in New York City following a bird strike.

Several months later, the pilot nicknamed "Sully" visited his hometown, where there was a parade and he also gave the commencement address at Denison High School.
