To commemorate the anniversary, Sullenberger, first officer Jeff Skiles, some passengers and some members of the ferry crews who rescued them gathered today in New York, according to ABC. All 155 passengers, of course, survived the landing.
Since Jan. 15, 2009, Sullenberger has retired from US Airways, authored a best-selling memoir and works as a aviation consultant and public speaker.
Here's video of NBC News's coverage at the time, followed up by U.S. Coast Guard footage of the accident (the landing begins at the 2:02 mark).
