Miracle on the Hudson




The reason Sandy Schuessler Wright MPHS Jan 66 tracks plane/animal stikes is to better understand how they happen and so that policies and procedures can be developed to minimize strikes.

She helped eliminate a large potential problem.  A very large airport is planned south of Chicago near the Villages of Peotone, Beecher, University Park, and Monee.  Initial plans for the airport called for a very large wetland at the eastern end of the runway.

I discussed this with Sandy.  She told me that was crazy since wetlands attract large waterbirds.  I discussed this issue with the consultants and they changed the design- no wetlands near the airport.

The miracle on the Hudson is an excellent example of this problem.  Captain Sullenberger (Sully) was flying the aircraft when large geeze were ingested in both engines.  No power. He made a remarkably safe landing on the Hudson River - videos below.

My cousin in Rapid City, South Dakota was on Skype with her brother in Tokyo, both of them looking at each other on their laptops. A friend called my cousin in Tokyo, and he put all three of them on a Skype conference call.

The gentleman in New York saw the plane flying lot over the Hudson. He turned his laptop around and all three of them saw the remarkable landing and rescue live on their laptops.
