NTSB Training (sort of)

As most of you should recall, this is the fuselage of US Airways 1549 - N106US. This will probably be onw of the easiest scenarios, considering most of you know how this plane crashed, but if you don’t, can you tell how it ended up in the Hudson, only by looking at these photos?

MaxSez: Please include your forensic investigator credentials with your response. Are you a aerodynamic, structural or electronic engineer all with Phd’s or a Test/Chief Pilot ATP rated. Even a certified avionics or engine mech will do. Additionally Pls include the last time you physically walked an aircraft crash site. If you can say yes to all or any of the above credentials please comment. I’m tired wasting my time reading reams of BS & opinion. Like my man Sgt. Friday said “Just the Facts”. Thank you very much, Gooday.

Wish I could go see it 😳

Example: At so and some time, a flock of geese struck the two engines and the cockpit windows causing loss of both the first and second engines.

I saw it while at the Carolinas Aviation Museum, wish I had a photo, but I reset my iPad

So, I have learned that another plane has crashed into the Hudson, back in may, but he didn’t survive.
