NTSB final report on US Airways Flight 1549 Hudson River accident

NTSB logoThe US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released its final report on the now-famous ditching of a US Airways Airbus A320 in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009.  Readers will recall that US Airways Flight 1549 lost power in both engines due to a multiple bird strike while climbing out from New York's La Guardia Airport.  All 155 crew and passengers on board survived.

If you are interested in having a look at the final report, here is the link: NTSB Report AAR10-03.  Warning: this is a hefty document in the form of a 213 page 'pdf' file, so it may take quite awhile to download.
