Shults admitted to Elle.com. 'After my talk, she came up to me and said, "Actually Sully is no you." It's all about perspective and how much information you have.

I landed the plane safely though and I don't need to address it further. I did it. People can take the facts and work it out for themselves. Let them connect the dots.'

'The only regret I have is that when they brought Jennifer forward, instead of sitting back to let the medical team just do what they do, I wish I could have helped cover her a little better,' Shults admitted.

'I prayed there was still life in her, and I remember thinking, "She has got to be freezing." It bothered me that I didn't go get my sweater to put on her. It's small, but stepping in and extending a hand to help always makes a big difference.'

Shults added: 'It's difficult, because when you lose a passenger, it has a completely different posture than when you don't.

When there's a loss of life, it isn't eclipsed by all the good that happens.'
