For the survivors of a plane crash, memories of the incident -- if not the injuries -- can linger on for years, sometimes for a lifetime. For people who have to travel for work, this can place a huge burden on their careers. Such is the case for a well-known drummer for a rock band who is staying at home in the U.S. rather than flying with his bandmates to Australia for a tour.
The Hudson River is no stranger to plane crashes. Four years ago this month, US Airways Flight 1549 famously ditched into the river near New York City's 48th Street, famously captained by Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. All 155 people on board survived, and the image of the plane half-submerged in the river was an indelible one for anyone involved in the aviation industry.
