NTSB makes conclusions on Hudson River miracle

 

The National Transportation Safety Board today issued a list of conclusions on last year's 'Miracle on the Hudson' when a U.S. Airways A-320 departed New York LaGuardia (LGA) for Charlotte, N.C. (CLT) and struck a flock of birds and landed without fatality in the frigid January waters.

The report says much more than merely concluding 'Sully=Good, Geese=Bad,' noting the almost-perfect sequence of events that saved a jetliner full of lives that day.
