The miracle on the Hudson

We know you've heard and read a great deal about yesterday's Miracle on the Hudson, as New York Gov. David Paterson called it: the survival of all aboard US Airways flight 1549. For our records, here is a thorough AP story on what happened in New York after the Airbus jet lost power in both engines because of an apparent "double bird strike." Here's is one about how more accidents recently have been non-fatal. And here's a story about what PHL does to keep birds from endangering aircraft coming and going.  Our apologies for being away from access to the 'Net yesterday while traveling. Check in here Monday for a Winging It column on airline safety.
