Lost EPs invite US Airways pilot to set

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jan 23rd 2009 6:14PM

Chesley SullenbergerCaptain Chesley Sullenberger, the famed pilot who recently crash landed US Airways flight 1549 after a flock of birds clogged the plane's engines, just got invited to go see another famous plane crash:

Oceanic Airlines flight 815.

TV Guide's Matt Mitovich is reporting that Lost bosses Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse would love to meet "Sully," especially given the circumstances of his extraordinary situation. Sullenberger expertly landed his Airbus A320 in the Hudson River last Thursday, ensuring that all 155 passengers and crew on board survived.

Oceanic pilot Seth Norris was clearly not as lucky.

Personally, I think Lindelof and Cuse should do even better. Give the guy a walk-on role. He could be an old pilot buddy sharing Oceanic conspiracies with Frank Lapidus. Or better yet, he could play a role in what I'm sure will be an interesting sub-plot that's yet to get an complete explanation: Ajira Airways.

Or...they could hire him as a consultant, and finally write about what happened in the cockpit right before the plane broke up midair. He could then get a cameo as an air traffic controller who lost the plane on radar.

Clear evidence that the writers are making this shit up as they go along! I'm glad I stopped watching after Season 1.

And yet here you are, 4 years later acting like a pathetic little shit who spends his time reading about a show he doesn't watch just to make snide comments about it.

I DON'T KNOW. But I do know how to not use the Caps Lock(e!) button.

I actually think its pretty damn cool that this Sully gentlemen is getting so much press. We need to celebrate everyday heroes more than we do (and much more than the celebrities that our media covers so much).
