Pilot who landed airliner on Hudson visits Ark.

ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - The airline pilot who put a huge airplane down on the Hudson River in January, saving all 155 people aboard, will make a visit Saturday to northwest Arkansas.

Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed US Airways flight 1549 on the Hudson adjacent to Manhattan on Jan. 15, plans to sign copies of his book at the Walmart store in Rogers beginning at 11 a.m.

 The book is titled "Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters." Sullenberger returned to flying for US Airways only last month after retraining following the successful crash landing.
