Captain Chelsey Sullengerger: 208 Seconds: A Lifetime of Lessons

January 15th, 2017
7:00PM
The Mahaffey Theater


Captain Sullenberger was flying a United Airways jet out of New York's LaGuardia Airport on a cold day in January, 2009 when a bird strike caused the failure of both engines. All 155 souls on board were rescued after Sully and his crew safely guided the aircraft to an emergency water landing in the Hudson River. Sully’s skill, determination and ability to keep calm under pressure cemented his position as one of the great American heroes of our time.

The special presentation, 208 Seconds: A Lifetime of Lessons, will take place at The Mahaffey eight years to the day since the "Miracle on the Hudson." Sully reminds audiences, even in these days of conflict, tragedy and uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for - that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.

Tickets and special packages are available now. Call 727.893.7832 or visit TheMahaffey.com to secure your seat for this riveting presentation today.
