Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who piloted a US Airways flight to land in the middle of the Hudson River last year says he's retiring.
Sullenberger, 59, joined US Airways' predecessor airline in 1980.
Flight attendant Doreen Welsh, who was also on the flight is also retiring.
All 150 passengers survived the emergency river landing in January 2009 when the plane's engines were struck by birds.
