CBS sent us this image of Katie Couric interviewing Capt. Chesley Sullenberger and the entire crew of US Airways Flight 1549. This part of the 60 Minutes interview was conducted Monday at one of US Airway’s maintenance hangars at Charlotte-Douglas International airport.

TVNewser has learned Sunday’s story will most likely be a two-parter, a rarity for 60 Minutes. But when the show lands a big story, they have been known to take the extra time to tell it. Couric also talked with Sullenberger and this wife at their home in California last week and the show assembled more than 50 passengers along with the crew during Monday’s taping in Charlotte.
