Causality 29: Flight 1549

5 June, 2019

CURRENT

In 2009 an AirBus A320 departing LaGuardia Airport in New York suffered a dual engine failure due to a bird strike during takeoff. In a highly improbable event an equally highly improbable landing in the Hudson River shocked and amazed the world. We look at what went right on Flight 1549.
In Causality Explored, (Premium ONLY) it was quite fortuitous that Flight 1549 was outfitted for EOW Operations (Extended Over-Water) and we look into just HOW lucky it was, and why many airlines in the USA don't equip their aircrafts with this additional lifesaving equipment.
