Congrats to the FLL ATC Controllers for showing and voicing their respect as Capt Sully taxied his A321. First, they taxied the aircraft around all traffic to the head of the line. Finally, as he made it short of the departure runway, one of the controllers read a farewell message. After departure the aircraft on freq joined in. Well done!

Any recordings of this yet?   :-P

Congrats to Captain Sully and Best Wishes for his life of leisure.... well done!
I too am looking forward to the recording, hoping some one captured it!!

Just a few minutes out from landing, the fire trucks are getting in position for the water streams from what I'm hearing on ATC.  :) hopefully some of the media are present for the landing.  I can't find anything anywhere, even chartlotte news sites.  There are helicopters near the airport that are waiting so I'm guessing it's media helicopters, but we'll see. Given how much he's captured the nations attention and respect, I'm surprised the national news networks have just a tiny blurb about his retirement.

Here's a slideshow of the arrival, with the fire dept. water salute:

Geez, you'd think he'd had enough of water :) They should have released a flock of Canada geese for him :)
