"Miracle on the Hudson" co-pilot withdraws hundreds of thousands of dollars from M&I Bank

Yesterday the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Jeff Skiles, the co-pilot in the "Miracle on the Hudson" crash landing in January 2009, has withdrawn hundreds of thousands of dollars from his accounts at M&I Bank and has deposited those funds in other financial institutions. Explaining his decision, Skiles said, "They have supported Gov. Walker and I wanted to send a message to them."

Skiles is a pilot for US Airways and is a member of the US Airways Pilots Association.
