Who isn't going to the Inauguration?
In addition to everyone else hitting up Washington, D.C. this week, Obama decided to add the five crew members from US Airways Flight 1549 to his guest list.
Obama has already praised chief pilot Chesley Sullenberger for his "heroic" landing of the goosed aircraft, which he managed to land as gently as possible in the Hudson River and save all 150 passengers.
Sullenberger is on top of the world right now after his miraculous landing, and the invitation to Tuesday's events is just one of many tributes the pilot has received.
