It was an A for an experienced pilot

He landed at 12:39 on runway 10L at West Palm Beach Florida. The runway heading would be ~100 degrees. The 12:53 wind at West Palm was from 30 degrees at 15 knots gusting to 22. So on top of everything else he probably had a significant left x-wind to deal with. He kept it on the centerline with no aircraft damage and walked away. That’s beyond Captain Sullenberger material for an inexperienced pilot.
